110 – Visit By Ben, Emma and “Baby Bump”

At the end of August we were delighted to have our younger son Ben, his “other half” Emma and “Baby Bump” to stay.  They are expecting a little arrival at the end of November and were both much in need of a relaxing holiday.  This was to be Emma’s first trip to Italy.

Although their stay here was all too brief, Ben and Emma managed to fit in ….. a couple of days at the beach …..

some local sight-seeing (Sperlonga) …..

and a day in Rome.

We were all kindly invited to our friends, Luca and Loredana’s home, for a special meal to celebrate Luca’s 50th Birthday.  Buon Compleanno Luca !!!

By the way -such a landmark birthday is shortly looming for

Paul this October !!!

One day we were also invited to San Donato and Atina in the Val di Comino and enjoyed another delicious meal with our Italian cousins.

Emma is a very passionate and creative cook and during her stay, delighted in preparing some srumptious food for us all.

Local tomatoes, Mozzarella di Bufala Drizzled With “Tre Cancelle” Olive Oil

Breakfast – Emma’s Tasty Potato Cakes

Please come back soon Emma !!!

“Papa Woods” and Emma are about to move into their new home together in Cardiff, in time to get settled before the little addition to their family arrives.

We wish them all lots of love and all the very best  in their new home.

  1. I stumbled upon your blog looking for the name of the easter bread that my grandmother made. She (along with my grandfather) immigrated from San Donato to Boston. I love the pictures! Someday I will get there.
