Random last-day Photos with Tom and Nancy


Well, these are just pictures of our last day with Tom and Nancy. It was wonderful having them here! ....and of course, we had to end it all with GELATO!

I know, I know, you're probably getting sick and tired of seeing Venice pictures. If you come and visit, you'll probably not even want to visit Venice. This is my 8th time of visiting Venice, and actually I love it! We try and do something a little different each time we go. This time we didn't even get there until the afternoon and then we stayed until about 9:00pm after the majority of all the tourists leave. It was beautiful and even romantic....well, as romantic as it can be with 3 kids.

The Hills are Alive.....AHHH Switzerland!

We got to spend a long weekend in Bern and Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Our friend Cindy Adams went through the temple for her first time and we were able to go with her! We took beautiful side trips through the Alps. We drove through Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen. We took a gorgeous train ride to Wengen and then a tram up to Mannlichen. We then hiked for an hour and a half through the most breathtaking scenery to Kleine Scheidegg and then took a train back to Lauterbrunnen. All I can say is WOW! The pictures don't do it justice!

Sacile....Gelato....what could be better?

Blake's sister Nancy and her husband Tom just came to visit us in Italy. They arrived in the morning, so we took them to Sacile and fed them Gelato to try to keep them awake. That's the way to start any vacation - GELATO!!!

Croatia and Venice!!!

Well, I'm finally posting pictures of a fun trip we had in July. Our good friends, the Jensens who live in Germany came down to visit us. We spent a couple days camping in Croatia (not my favorite thing to do...but I did survive :) We also spent a day in Venice. Above are pictures of those fun days!
