Just thought I would get some pictures up from our Italy trip... There will be more to come, this one is just a preview. Tuscany was absolutely gorgeous. We had a great time with the whole family. Andreas' parents, his brother Johan and his family and the three of us all went. Mom and dad gave the trip to us for their 40th anniversary and mom's 60th birthday. We are very appreciative for there kindness and really enjoyed being with the family. There will be more to come in the next days...... so stay tuned.
Andreas took this pic. Found it interesting that you could buy any god you wanted in San Gimignano. Not to mention art scultpures that happen to be in France. I guess if it sells it will be there.
The first day we were there, Sunday we went into the old stone city that we could see from the backyard of the house. This is a picture of one of the nine towers in San Gimignano.
This is the house that mom and dad rented for the week, Casa Renio. We had the first floor and the owners lived on the second floor. I would highly recommend this house, it was beautiful with an amazing view and a wonderful pool. It was about 40 minutes outside of Florence, but a great location to do day trips to many cities.
A pool with a view and a little boy that became a fish that week. Samuel has been taking swimming lessons for two terms now. In Italy, he finally took off his waterwings and swam by himself. By the end of the week he was swimming the whole length of the pool, jumping and diving (belly flopping) in and trying to sit on the bottom of the shallow end. This was the best part of the vacation for Sam.
More to come!
