A Promise is a Promise

Nonna: Boys, when we're in Italy I'm going to buy you all the gelato you want.

Boys: Really?

Nonna: Yes. Whenever you want a gelato, you come to me or Nonno.

Me and Joe: Does that include us?

Nonna: No, only the boys.

Well. The boys think this is funny.

Then, the promise is sealed with kisses. I hope Nonna and Nonno know what they're getting into because my boys have plans. . . there are a lot of piazzas, a lot of ice-cream stands, and a lot of flavors.

Mamma mia che rischio, promettere tutto il gelato che vogliono a tre ragazzi? AIUTO!! Pensa che quando Chiara l'ha saputo ha chiesto a Millie si si può unire al gruppo quando venite a Verona.
Vi aspetto a braccia aperte e prometto a voi grandi, tutto il gelato che vorrete. A PRESTO!!

When you will come back from Italy remember to buy two pizzas for us (with gorgonzola and prosciutto crudo please) and when with your airplane you will be above London open the window and drop our pizzas (remember the parachute as well)... we will be ready to catch them!! We miss pizza, we miss formaggio, we miss affettati, pane e buon vino... but most of all we miss Italy!! Enjoy your trip!

Ha, ha! What was Nonna THINKING? Can't wait to hear the results! There will surely be a gelato shortage in Italy in the next few weeks!
