Merry Christmas!! We are having a great time on our trip but our thoughts frequently turn to our wonderful families. We are so lucky, we love to be with our families so much. We are thinking of you.
Ryan can’t stop saying, “I love this city!” We are having a great time, it’s hard dragging Ryan in at night – and he’s bursting to get out in the morning. It’s like he’s a kid again! I teased him the other day, between the two of us at times I’ve thought I had more energy between the two of us- but he is definitely out doing me. He’s been a pack mule for most of the trip. I keep thinking, “How are you doing this?! What are you running off of? I am dragging a little now, it’s nice that it’s Christmas and nearly everything is closed. It gives me an excuse to take it easy. If it wasn’t Christmas we’d be out seeing the Spanish steps- climbing up those beautiful hills up the Medici garden.
Finn said on the train yesterday morning, “Guess what Mommy?!” “What Mr?!” “I love Italy!” The boys LOVED taking the train. We’ve been able to keep it really fun for them. With stops for pizza, gelato, going on many carousel rides that you can find in many of the piazas. Coming during the off season was a good choice, there is significantly fewer tourists. It’s been fun watching the boys faces. They really have thought it was cool. In the Colossum, the boys heard that lions and tigers used to be kept there in the cages and the whole time they ran around looking in all of the cages.
Any lion and tigers in here??
