The Best most Bittersweet Family Picnic Ever
This year was our first family picnic without two of our matriarchs in the family. Nonna Spano and Zia Mella were both greatly missed, but as one cousin said, 'it was like all the rain were their tears of happiness raining down on us, celebrating family. The rain poured and poured and then when we didn't think we could eat another bite, the sun came out and the games began. We played bocce, egg toss, water balloon toss and sack races. There was fishing, and walks, and a whole lot of laughs. Even some new fashions were designed for the event. See for yourself!
