East at Easter

 So the Easter Bunny landed at our house... and it appears he is a MAJOR chocoholic!!  Ok, so it's her Daddy that provided what appears to be a lifetime supply of chocolate! Of course, that's because he plans on helping her with the challenge of emptying that basket!

After indulging in just a FEW pieces of candy, it was time to get ready for a lovely dinner at Ariani's Restaurant with Nana, Papa & "Luna Linda & Tony Baloney"...

 "Mama, PLEASE can we go eat spaghetti now"

 I love that in the sunlight you can see just how brown her hair is!  My beautiful little girl...
Finally got to the restaurant! So glad to see Nana & Papa!  Once again, taking her to a nice restaurant was not even remotely difficult!  We had a few people comment to us about what a pleasure it was to see such a well behaved little girl!  Yeah, we were totally thrilled & proud of our special young lady! 

 It's really hard to see in the picture, but this was a wonderful "self portrait" on a napkin... done by the owner/Chef at the restaurant.  Chef Dario fell under Rachel's spell and came over to our table to introduce himself.  He had our waiter bring him a new napkin, and proceeded to draw a terrific picture for Rach.  She was SO excited about it!

 It was still really nice out when we left the restaurant. As soon as we got outside, Rach asked if we could take some pictures at the flower fountain... so how could we possibly say no?

Our Story

My photo
We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
