Our family of seven has managed to squirrel away enough Lire (or Euro, to be more up to date) to travel to Italy this summer. We purchased tickets yesterday and will travel to see my aunt and uncle and their two kids in Viareggio first (by way of Pisa):

Can you stand it? LOOK AT THAT BEACH! I will be passed out, blissfully unaware that the Internet even exists.... Ahhhh.....

Then we'll travel to Florence:

Yes, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!

We'll have to visit the wonderful San Gimignano that E.M. Forster can't stop talking about in A Room with a View (my favorite book of all time).

And finally, we plan to spend five days in Roma:

Bravissima for us!

For inquiring minds, this does mean that I actually got our passport applications off without a hitch. Six! A flylady feat to behold!

Florence, Rome -- I am drooling with envy!

I am going to hide in your suitcase. Take a large one, please. :-)

I would love you to hide in our suitcase.

If you ever go to Italy, you can mos certainly stay with my aunt who is the most fun hostess ever. She would have you rolling.

Some day maybe we can go together...

I'm so happy for you! It will be so wonderful and your kids will be SO into being European, if only for a while. The bridge you pictured in Italy is the jeweler's bridge, so maybe you could get your dh to buy you some Italian bling-bling.
