When we got back from Italy, Navy brought home a present to share ......Chicken Pox! Yea!!

She was such a good sport, she cuddled a lot but was happy through it all!
They all developed a case of the pox, Olivia had them the worst on her face! Now she has a few scars :(

James was a champ and had the next mildest case next to Aubri, who I did not get a picture of.

What a buddy!

A remedy that I read about online, I don't think it did much but make a mess!!!!

Michelangelo's Pieta, He created this in 1499 when he was only 25 years old.

The inside of St. Peter's cathedral, is the place where St. Peters tomb lies.

The outside of St. Peters Cathedral

We were able to take a tour of the Vatican museum, which included Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. It was amazing to see it in person. It really amazed me that they would let us take pictures, i we just could not use our flash.

We went to this beautiful home that sat on the hill overlooking all of Rome! It was breathtaking. We enjoyed a beautiful meal, wonderful entertainment, and fabulous fireworks. It was a perfect evening.

The leaning tower of Pisa......I have always known that the leaning tower of Pisa leans....obviously....but it REALLY does. I could not believe how much, the pictures do not do it justice, it looks like it should be falling over. They have secured it so that it will not continue to sink on one side, therefore causing it to lean further.

This is just the thing to do when you go to Pisa. Everyone takes a picture attempting to hold up the tower. What a strong man I have!!!!

This is a coastal town, it has beautiful blue water. Navy put her toes in for a little dip.

It is amazing that they build these houses so close together on the edge of a cliff. Most of these people do not have cars, they just have boats.

We were eating a little lunch....Margareta pizza....Yummie!!!

Italy....Tuscany.....Siena....Part 2

The Clock tower in the Piazza del campo, in the medieval city of Siena.

Looking over into the vineyards in Tuscany

The Duomo in Sienna, was supposed to be the largest church in Christendom, but was not completed due to the plague in 1348 that killed half of the cities population

The gate leading into the medieval city.
