I am a bit behind on my blogging but no worries. With my busy week, I completely forgot to post pictures from last weekend when my parents were in town. Now that Josh and I live far away from our families, we really try to cherish the time we are able to spend with them. And last weekend we were blessed with a lot of quality time with them.
This is Harry Potter...his head is pumpkin that someone airbrushed a face on. They had a lot of other pumpkin characters around Mason Farms...Dora the Explorer, Blues Clues, Veggie Tales, Shrek, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
We just couldn't resist.
My beautiful mother.
We split these peppers. Super yummy!!!
Concord grapes, a fall favorite. Okay, did anyone ever call these snot grapes when you were growing up? Because I did. I know it sounds totally disgusting but the texture is kind of like snot. But they are so so so good! They weren't around for too long.
After our trip to Mason Farms we headed out for dinner at a new restaurant in Fairview called Peppinos. This restaurant was a huge hit with my family! The food was amazing, very authentic and very very fresh. It's definitely a restaurant to go to when the parents are in town since it is a bit pricey. Josh ordererd linguine with clams and here is a pic of his clam shells.
Of course I had to sneak a little bit from the corner right when my parents arrived. It was so so so good. My lonely candle on top of the cake sings "happy birthday" to you when you twist it. An embarrassing Belcastro tradition, but my mother insists. And secretly, I am happy she does.
A great great weekend with my family. I'll try to post pictures of my birthday party and weekend with Josh as soon as I can. Thanks for reading!
