Tuscan Hillside Adventures

Today we rented a car and drove through Tuscany to the towns of Pienza, Montepulciano (where New Moon was filmed), and San Quirco d'Orcia. It's been a little stressful trying to find cities and parking but the cities are so quaint and have a much more authentically Tustin feel. At one of the restaurants in Pienza, we ate (for lunch) spaghetti with handmade noodles, soup with beans that had been simmering for six hours, crepes that were handpressed, and all sorts of delicious sauces.

While the cities definitely have tourists in them, they are still mostly comprised of locals, which has made them much different than Siena where there are tourist shops on every corner.
 Today is our anniversary and we are celebrating by having Connor sleep in his crib while we order room service: handmade pasta, mozzerella and tomatos, risotto with mushrooms, chocolate cake, and a profiterole. This pregnant lady can't partake in any amazing Italian wine, but the hubby certainly will! I had hoped to go out, but Little Man has not slept 12 straight hours (like he usually does at home) since we left home a week ago and a happy baby makes a happy wife...which I'm sure you know: Happy Wife, Happy Life!!
What an amazing way to spend an anniversary!!
Our family of four: Mama, Baby, Connor, and Daddy
