Our visit is just wonderful. My kids are having a great time, they enjoyed being in Pa with my brother's family. We went to the Crayola factory which was really neat. They swam like crazy at my brother's in Long Island and had a blast with the twins. My 20 month old niece can't say Sonny, so she called my son Onny Onny, and would chase after him. Too cute.
Tomorrow is the city. We are going to The Museum Of Natural History, I hope Santino doesn't think everything is going to come to life like the movie! We are going to spend a leisurely day there going to the various sites and not rush. I have taken over a hundred pics already, and I know I will have tons more yet!
This was a great vacation for my kids, myself and my Mom. I do have to say, I miss my husband terribly, and that is the one very big drawback. I don't like being away from him this long, he is my partner, and I miss his hugs, kisses, and snuggles. I want to go home to him, but I don't want to leave Mom. I am glad I am with her and sharing this time together.
Well, I am off to make some pulpa salad. That is octopus for those of you who don't know, it also has squid and scungili in it as well, and my Dad made an exceptional one. I hope I do him justice!

This is the famous Alba's Bakery. They have been bought by VillaBate Bakers who were located a couple of blocks away and it is now called VillaBate Alba's. Probably kept Alba's name in there since it is such an 18th Ave icon

There are 2 of each design. I hope the girls who get them like them as much as me. I think they'll embellish a page quite nicely!
