Some of my favorite pics!

Now for the photos without my braceface smile.
These represent some of my favorite photos
from the trip. Enjoy! The Colosseum was quite the experience.
They are currently housing a gladiator display
that had weapons, costumes, & the remains
of many of the animals that were killed there.
What a horrible period in history....
which fascinates my children! :0)
Pompeii was incredible. It is amazing that
ash from the volcano covered and preserved
these buildings that date back to BC!
Pompeii was such a vast city, too. This photo is awesome. These are some of the
columns of Pompeii from BC surrounded by
grapevines. I just spent $65 to get this one
enlarged to go over my bed. I love it!!!

Jason gets credit for this one. He took a

chair lift to the highest point on the Isle

of Capri, Italy. This was a straight shot

down the backside of the island (just

opposite of the blue grotto). He is so

high up, he is above the clouds! Great

shot Jason!!! I was busy shopping. On our train ride through Northern Italy,

we passed so many of these beautiful fields

of sunflowers. It was breathtaking! Nothing gets better than the Eiffel

Tower at sunset!

What great pictures! When we were in Italy they said the fields of Tuscany were best in the summertime with all the sunflowers. Glad you got to see them from your cool train trip.
