Lovely Sudbury

We had a wonderful, if not whirlwind, trip to Sudbury yesterday. My dear husband drove the entire 3 hours there (stopping when necessary and without complaint for both his baby boy and for his pregnant sister!) and again on the way home. We had lunch with Zia Ev at her house, a visit with Zia Ange at her new retirement hme and then dinner with the whole clan. Have you ever visited an Italian aunt around lunchtime??? Let's just say it included ravioli with meat sauce, meatballs, salad, bread and a touch or red wine ;)

Despite a small bought with car sickness on the way home (poor Joey, and poor Zia Jodi who got to sit beside him!) a great time was had by all. Of course, we have new pictures:
This is of Nonno Joe (Jason's Dad, Joey's namesake) given to us by Zia Ange, keeper of all family history.

Dinner was at a pub, so we thought it only right to take a picture of Joey's very first time in a bar! (note both the proud Daddy and Joey's adorable new moccasins, picked up at the French River Trading Post on the drive up)

This picture turned out terribly, but it's the only one we have of the group at dinner.

So today we're off to visit Nonno Joe and Nanny Sue, a quick trip to Ikea and then to the airport to pick up Grandmere!

And just a quick "hello" to Gramma and Papa Roy, who I know are enjoying their vacation but are also missing Joey like crazy! Gramma never really mentally vacations from Joey, I know she is probably reading this even though she should be relaxing in the Okanagen Valley :)
