My parents and brother in law were visiting us from Brazil and we had a great time together. My favorite day as usual was THE PICNIC DAY at my favorite park, The Booklyn Bridge Park. I made snacks and  did not make anything super fancy otherwise it wouldn't match with the picnic spirit . I made some sandwiches with french baguette,grape tomatoes marinated in olive oil and rosemary, Virginia ham and fresh mozzarella. For desert I made an upside down peach cake that my uncle chef Mark gave me the recipe.
This moments with family is so special to me that what I try to keep in mind at all times is: we don't have to wait to realize later how special that moment was, we can realize it in real time when everything is going on and then, enjoy even more every second of the reunion.
As part of the fun we took a series of pictures jumping, laying at the lawn, eating and listening to good music.
My favorite part was seeing my mother in law doing all of this at the ground cause she usually freaks out about massing her hair and her clothes. I guess she realized at real time how special that moment was being ( she even pretended she was jumping and raised her hands during the photoshoot,awesome)
