Washington D.C. Trip

Chris in charge of the Honor Society at our high school, and we had the wonderful opportunity to chaperon them on their trip to D.C. I was a little leery of leaving the boys for so long. We had never left them and wasn't sure how they or I would do. Grandma Fanara had Spring break at her school the week we were supposed to go. She offered to keep the boys. So with much prayer and persuasion from Chris, I decided to go. It turned out to be a phenomenal week. We left Easter Sunday after the evening service on a red eye. We stayed there thru Saturday morning. We visited the Capitol, Library of Congress, Monuments, Fort McHenery, Holocaust Museum, Mt. Vernon, Several Smithsonian's, Ford's Theater, and several other spots that I am forgetting. We also got to eat at the famous Occidental which is always a highlight. And the best was Fogo De Chao, all you can eat meat. A delicious Brazilian Barbecue. Dan and Gen Azzarello also went along as chaperones. We had 12 students who went on the trip. They were a wonderful group of kids! We had a wonderful time and were so glad to be apart of this trip.


These are some pictures of Easter dinner at Nana and Papa's home. Unfortunately, we did not get any pictures of our whole family in our Sunday Easter outfits. The boys looked so sharp in their new suits.

Grandma's Birthday Party

We had a great time at Grandma's birthday party. Grandma & Grandpa Azzarello came along with Nana and Papa Fanara. Nana had just had cataract surgery that day so her eye was a little sore. But, we were glad she was able to make it. Nana and Papa Trieber came by and joined us for cake and ice cream. While Grandpa was watching the boys in the back, Hudson decided to crawl fully clothed into the fountain! Hence the reason for his diaper only picture. Had to throw the clothes in the dryer. It was a very nice party. We are so thankful for Grandma and all that she means to her family. Thankful for another year of good health.
