Invasion of the Snails

I really don't even know what to say about this. In my life I've had a wasp hive break through into my kitchen, mice, box elder invasions, but this one was new to me. When I got home from work, there were thousands of snails that came out of the ground and were all over my yard and plants after a good rainstorm. This is the bucket that we collected them in. There were even babies everywhere! EWWWWWWWW! Anyone have a good snail remedy?

Adam's birthday was a total blast. We had a bunch of friends meet over here for beers and margs with a nice little appy spread. When everyone was good and sufficiently drunk, a large group of us walked down to the recently re-opend Este Pizza:

We ordered four different pizzas and a few pitchers. My favorite is the Italian Flag. It has pesto on one side, ricotta with roasted garlic in the middle, and traditional marinara and mozz on the end. Great NY style, fold-the-gigantic-slices pizza. They even have vegan offerings.

Then we walked back over here for more patio fun and games...anyone ever play drunken tug-o-war while standing on a wobbly bucket? And, spectacular carrot cake, yummy!

Fun for all! Check out the pics. More will be posted as available.

Wouldn't I make a fabulous mom? Here's me getting my bosses baby drunk!
I made my grandma Cerniglio's carot cake recipe. It was delish!
