Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Cookout at the Italian Social Club

My brother and father are members of a local Italian Social Club. This evening they had a cookout at the club. Actually, they had "meat on a stick" that they cook over a big fire pit. It is delicious! Gabriella was fascinated with the grill and the fire. Gabriella loved socializing, watching people play ball, playing ball herself, and spending time with family. She LOVES being with family. Probably because she is the center of attention and everybody gloats over her!
Gabriella enjoying a good, healthy brownie dinner!:
Gabriella with Tito (Tio Michael) and Gabriella's new dolly. There was a baby at the cookout that Gabriella was quite amazed by. She kept "visiting" the baby and even gave the baby her dolly two times and walked away from it. I was quite impressed with her great sharing!:
Gabriella playing with Tita (Tia Candace):
Gabriella got to play horseshoes...:
...and ladder ball...:
...and bocce ball!: Taking a break with Tito:
Gabriella was not ready to leave when it was time to go home. While we were driving she said, "Walk, Tita." We had to call Tita and tell her we missed her!
