    Una frase abbastanza banale. Da un depliant/brochure da un villaggio turistico.

    "Ricordo ancora quel giorno come il più divertente.
    Il sorriso pervadeva i nostri volti, i nostri figli erano felici ed i nostri amici finalmente potevano divertirsi con i bambini.


    Che gioia!"

    Smiles pervaded our faces just doesn't seem right to me.

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Maybe "we were all smiles..."?

    Smiles radiated off our faces ......... might be another option.

    I like we were all smiles.:)

    Or:

    We couldn't stop smiling
    We couldn't keep the smiles off our faces
    We had these great big smiles on our faces

    etc.;)

    Certo, pervadeva è una scelta quantomeno un po' letteraria...

    Infatti, e in inglese moderno "pervade" suonerebbe molto pesante in una frase di questo genere....;)
