It had to happen at some point…Alessio would learn how to swim. Wife and I are already preparing for the 2032 Olympics where he will take home at least 25 gold medals! Can’t wait for that first endorsement contract and the house he buys us with the signing bonus.
Back in July, Wife and I flew out to freezing Arizona for another installment of the Bernasconi Family Reunion.
We enjoyed riding the quads, Montezuma Castle National Monument, driving a 50 mph or less Jeep, adult conversation in the midst of chasing small children, avoiding the lava carpet, piñatas and the Prescott Costco.
Once back in Phoenix, we enjoyed touring Ramon and Angela’s new mansion and a calm evening at the Bernasconi’s (Mario, Pam, and Vincenzo) with a little bit of rain:
Now we wait for the next reunion in 2015.
The Bernasconi clan has just lost one of its own. Wife and I would like to congratulate Marna and Robert Burdine on their nuptials.
Miss B will now be known as Mrs. B. I know it will be hard for Mrs. B’s 4th graders to make the name change but I think they will be able to manage it by month six.
Watch some of the event below:
This past Sunday, my parents celebrated 40 years of blissful marriage (well, after five children I am thinking that those years were not all blissful but stressful, busy, always late, expensive, scary, etc…) Okay, lets start this over again.
This past Sunday, my parents celebrated 40 years of a loving, exciting, and faithful marriage (even with 5 children). So to celebrate, the five of us decided to throw my parents a surprise party. Our family friend Debbie was kind enough to lend us her house for the occasion. After a dinner to distract my parents, we rushed over to Debbie’s and yelled “Surprise, Happy Anniversary!” After the initial shock, my parents along with everyone enjoyed some food (potato bar was a hit), wine, and telling embarrassing stories about my parents.
So here is to 40 more years of a more relaxing and tuition free marriage. Congratulations Mom and Dad!
Wife and I would like to welcome the newest Arizona Bernasconi, Ariana Brietta Bernasconi, daughter of my cousin Ramon and his girlfriend Angela, who was born on 12 November.
