Ocean City Vacation 2011 #2

Back “down the shore” for our second week as a family this summer. This time round, we hooked-up with the Fabians(+) who traveled 340 miles to visit beautiful Ocean City, NJ, and they were treated to an earthquake & hurricane in one week … do we know how to entertain our guests? 🙂 Had a […]

Ocean City Vacation 2011 #1

This past week was our first week of two that we plan to spend down the Jersey Shore this summer. It started with a dinner for Nonno, turning 82 on Sunday (we had a family party the week before that Gabriella made an awesome lemon cake for). The highlight of the week was para-sailing on […]

The Forgotten Pics

Looks like I forgot a few pictures from the girls’ trip to Belgium. Here are more from Elisa’s camera.

Pics from the Girls’ Trip to Belgium

The girls flew “unattended” to Belgium on June 18th and stayed with family until Joke met up with them on July 3rd. They were treated royally by everyone, had a great time with family and enjoyed a lot of quality time with their cousins!  Below are some pics of their trip.

Entertaining Movie

Another short film by Macera Movie Productions 🙂 Get the Flash Player to see this video.

Long Overdue Post

Well, last post was about Spring, and now we’re well into Summer and we have not posted anything, which is not to say that nothing has been happening! The end of the school year for the girls was filled with softball, horseback riding, dance and music which kept us all running around. Add to that […]

Spring has Sprung

Spring was welcomed in this weekend with some beautiful weather and a very busy itinerary! Elisa & Papa spent a sweaty afternoon going through some softball drills while Gabriella spent the afternoon with her classmates, and Sylvia’s new dog, Rosie.  On Saturday morning, the girls attended their softball evaluations, and did really well.  Gabriella did […]

Christmas Holiday, 2010

The family had a fun, action-packed, holiday this year and Papa decided to pack it all into one post! Joke & the girls spent Christmas eve day, preparing Sushi for dinner – not quite the traditional Seven Fishes. On Christmas morning we were awoken a little earlier than we would have liked (6:30am), to the […]

Christmas Tree Search, 2010

On Saturday, the family went on it’s annual search for the perfect Christmas tree, and unfortunately, this year the Jensen family was not able to join us.  The search was especially difficult with a strong divide of the family between two different trees.  Eventually, the half of the family with the biggest eyes won out, […]

Halloween 2010

Another great Halloween at the Macera/Bradt house.  This year, we got a great ‘deal’ on pumpkins at None Such Farm, so we (Papa) carved 3 to decorate the house for trick-or-treaters.  As a result, Mama has been ‘treating’ us to pumpkin soup, which we’ll be eating for months to come!    The girls invited some […]
