 16 Agosto 2015-August 16, 2015

It's been 6 years since our sweet Vittoria left. Time goes by, so fast at times that I sometimes can't believe it has been this long already, and then at times so slow, almost to a crawl.....
Oh, we miss her terribly, especially her little brother. He is craving anything that has to do with her, loves to see pictures and watch videos of his sister and hearing funny stories about her.

Friends-Amici

(Mom's turn)
After weeks of planning, we finally took our trip to the cabin with our closest and best friends, whom we consider part of our family. This has become the annual event that everybody looks forward to, adults and kids, who got to ride the horses on a long ride with James' dad.
Dopo settimane di pianificazione, siamo finalmente riusciti a fare il nostro viaggio alla baita con i nostril piu` cari e migliori amici, che consideriamo parte della nostra famiglia. Questo viaggio e` diventato un evento annuale che tutti non vedono l'ora di fare, grandi e piccoli che, appena arrivati, si sono subito fatti un bel giro a cavallo con il papa` di James.

Of course we couldn't pass on the four wheeling, which was a bit trickier this year since it was a little later in the season and most of the roads were covered in snow. It sure made it interesting though!Ovvio che non potevamo non andare sulle quad, anche se questo anno l'escursione si e` rivelata un po` diversa e piu` complicata visto che era alla fine dell'autunno e le strade erano gia` ricoperte di neve. E` stato un giro molto interessante!

HALLOWEEN 2013

So, Jacomo decided to be Captain America this year. He is very much into The Avengers or and Capt. America has a cool shield to defeat the bad guys...anyway, his mind was made up a long time ago and as soon as this Halloween costume was out in the store, it was his.

49 Months-49 Mesi

(Mom's turn)
The month of September literally flew by. We spent a weekend with James' family at the cabin and then a weekend with James' best friend from childhood Brandon and his family. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and our Vittoria was always by our side as we spent time with family and friends riding 4-wheelers and horses.
Il mese di settembre e` letteralmente volato via. Abbiamo trascorso un fine settimana con la famiglia di James alla baita e quello dopo con il miglior amico di James, Brandon, e la sua famiglia. Il tempo era assolutamente stupendo e la nostra Vittoria era sempre al nostro fianco mentre andavamo a cavallo o sulle quad con famiglia ed amici.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~One weekend, James took Jacomo and myself to go find some elk in the mountains. We woke really early and dressed in camo, we set out for a really neat adventure, the first of this kind for me.
Un altro weekend invece, James ci ha portato a trovare alcuni cervi in montagna. Ci siamo svegliati molto presto e vestiti con la mimetica, siamo partiti alla volta di una avventura veramente memorabile, che ne io ne Jacomo abbiamo mai avuto prima.
