Francesca and Jarrod visit

Right after Easter, Francesca (Chiara's sister) and Jarrod came to visit for a whirlwind 6-day visit!  They didn't sit still the whole time they were here. They went to Venice alone and had a great time. Then we all took the train to the Cinque Terre for an overnight stay. We really lucked out on the weather...it was beautiful and much warmer than we thought it would be. Then, they went to Como and Belaggio for a day with Chiara's Uncle Marco, and then they went to Milan for a day with our cousin Alice. They must have been exhausted after their "vacation!"  Here are some photos from the 5 Terre:

 Nuts...I can't remember which town this is....maybe Riomaggiore

 We took a boat between the towns. Norah had much more fun this time around.

 Surprise!  Jarrod proposed to Francesca while we were there! It took me until lunch to figure it out, even though she kept flashing her hand in front of me all day!

 Luke gave his seal of approval on the ring.

Easter 2014

Wow, it's been a long time since we put up any photos!!! A LOT has happened around here, so I should try to get caught up!

Here are the kids on Easter morning after they found all the Easter Eggs the Easter Bunny had hidden around the house. Getting them all to look in the same direction at the same time was impossible.
