The Baptism

Let me start out by saying I am not a fan of flying. 
But I will fly as long as I can prep for the flight...

This weekend Chris and I traveled to visit my nephew Nicholas and his family. 
We were asked to be Elenora's Godparents.

For dinner on Friday night we had a fantastic Antipasto at my nephew's house. There were so many things on the table I am sure I will not remember all of them. Stuffed Grape Leaves, Tomato Bruschetta, Cheeses, Prosciutto, Soppressata, Olives, Tuna, Italian Bread, Artichoke Hummus, Hot Peppers, Sweet Peppers, Fresh Mozzarella... it went on forever.

Then there was the Baptism.

Chris and I and my nephew's children.

Check out the shoes!

We had brunch after the ceremony at Matchbox. I had the Veggie Frittatta. It was so good, and I know my frittattas. The mushrooms were something I do not usually add but they were the perfect texture and the pesto was nice addition. Chris had the Bloody Mary Burger. It had a fried egg on top. I have seen burgers with fried eggs in magazines and online. I have been wanting to try it. Chris gave it two thumbs up... perhaps we can try it at home!

We spent Saturday playing with the kids and we had a cook-out Saturday night, sorry no photos but the turkey burger was grilled perfectly (Ralph was on the grill!). But I took some photos of the hydrangea plants at my nephew's house. There are so many of them!
We flew, oh wait we drove home. Our flight was cancelled!!!! So for dinner on Sunday we had MacDonald's Coffee and Bagel Chips. Sorry but I was not going to break down and eat reststop food. I am sure reststop food is good but I could not bring my self to order anything.
