Okay, so where do I begin?! This family's level of awesomeness was so great that it was simply not measurable on any scale of awesome.
They met me at Spanish Banks Beach with huge smiles, handshakes, and Italian accents. And a soccer ball. And three adorable children. Oh, and very stylish clothes. And - last but not least - a sense of adventure!
Cristian & Carmelina (see? even their names are so very Italian!) took everything in stride, from a sandy baby to a water-drenched son. (Carmelina's response to this last event very much impressed me: she smiled at him, pulled out an entire second outfit from her purse, and sent him back out to play!)
Talk about wonderful. They had me laughing the entire session & I can't wait to meet them again in the fall!
