March celebrations

last night we went to Leichardt, near the city of Sydney. well known for its Italian community. [we actually went to a Brazilian restaurant for dinner]

and afterwards, wandered around the Italian Quarter..

while Joe snapped away with his iPhone..

I did my best impersonations of the fountain scene from Under the Tuscan Sun.

not only was it our anniversary yesterday. but also my mothers 75th birthday.
22nd March is my grandson Harry's 3rd birthday
and 24th March is my eldest grandson Tom's 12th birthday..
today, we celebrated with an altogether lunch.

Audrey's yoghurt cake. recipe compliments of Susan Loomis 'On Rue Tatin'. in a word: yum

Our Anniv. is March 28th, Mum's birthday, as you know was the same day as your Mums, and we have 3 grand children with March birthdays...!
A fun and busy month all round..
PS Your grandsons are lovely looking boys.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day. I just 'love' Italian, but with a Dominican husband, don't have it very often.

Isn't it great when a whole lot of celebrations all come together on the same date?

So many happy occasions to celebrate! We have several March birthdays in HB's family, too.

The cake looks yummy.

How funny is this....I was only thinking this morning when I got out of bed that I might watch Under the Tuscan Sun today and here you mention it in this post. I love that movie and have it on DVD. Belated birthday wishes to Harry, Tom and your dear Mum. xo

March is a busy month for birthdays in my family daughter is the 14th, my son is the 20th and I'm the 23rd.
