Spring Break 2016 - Italia!

Sunday, April 10, 2016
For Spring Break this year, I went to Italy. It was so much fun being there in Spring since I usually go in the summer. The last time I was there in the spring was when I was living in Florence in 2008. Everything was in bloom and the weather was so nice!
Per le vacanze di Pasqua, sono andata in Italia. Era molto bello esserci in primavera visto che di solito ci sono solo d'estate. L'ultima volta che ero in Italia in primavera, era quando abitavo a Firenze nel 2008. Tutto stava fiorendo e anche il tempo era molto bello!

Le violette! 

Many streets had these beautiful trees that had just blossomed.
Tante strade avevano questi alberi che avevano appena fiorito.


The park that we took Giorgio to had a blanket of daisies. They were stunning.
Il parco dove portavamo Giorgio aveva un tappeto di margherite. Erano stupende!







Much time was spent at the park with Giorgio.
Tanto tempo l'ho passato al parco con Giorgio.





Being there for Easter, I had to bring some American traditions. I brought a kit to dye Easter eggs. This set was neat because it came with a crayon that you can draw on an egg with and then when you dipped it in the dye, you could read it. I had fun with Giorgio dying eggs.
Essendo in Italia per Pasqua, dovevo portare delle tradizioni Americani. Ho portato un set con cui si dipingono le uova. Io e Giorgio ci siamo divertiti.


So careful!

My favorite thing was spending time with my nonna. She cooked so many delicious meals for me and we even made it out and about. We had a great time!
La mia cosa preferita era passare il tempo con la nonna. Mi ha fatto tante cosa buone da mangiare e siamo anche andate a fare un paio di giri. Ci siamo divertite molto!




My favorite house!


With my cousins!

One thing that my nonna made for Easter were pesche (peaches). These are a dessert made with two cookies and a chocolate and vanilla cream in the center, then dipped in Alchermes, and rolled in sugar. YUM!
Una delle cose che la nonna ha fatto per Pasqua erano le pesche. Io l'ho aiutata a farle ed era bello vedere come si fanno. Adesso le devo fare a San Diego.

Then, I brought Easter eggs for Giorgio to do an Easter Egg hunt.
Poi, ho portato le uova di plastica cosi' Giorgio poteva trovarle.
