Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Rome Around the World





Today all of our History Channel watching was rewarded. We were able to go to most of the Roman Sites.
We first went to Capital Hill and saw the ruins of the palaces where the roman rulers lived, along with the temples that were built and the halls of justice. We had our trusty guide book with us and we would read about each site as we looked at them. I don’t want to bore you with details; it is sufficient to say that the sites were great. I have attached a photo of a man on a horse and if you are able to properly identify the man, you will win free lodging at our house whenever you need it.
Nicolle had a very big day today, for the first time, a stranger recognized that she is pregnant. In fact, it happened twice today. She was very excited.
This is a short one, because there is just too much to tell. One hint, when we get back, if you ask us about the trip, it might be similar to trying to get a sip of water from a fire hydrant. Please stop us if we go on too long about this place. We just love it so much.
p.s. the photo of nicolles profile is for her mom, who wanted to see her belly at 5 and one half months pregnant.

Nicolle, you look great!!! It looks like you all are having so much fun. I am so happy for you. Nicolle, if you were to play Hansel again, you would definitely need the duck tape!!!

Yippee! How exciting, Nicolle, that strangers are noticing your pregnant. That probably means they were noticing a couple of weeks ago, but just weren't sure if you gained weight in weird places or were actually pregnant.

I'm like Karen. I had never had much desire to tour Europe, but now...add that to my(very long) list of things to do before I die!

Your trip stops have been real fun looking so far & I hope you keep finding the best while your there. Remember to pick up something obscure & meaningful from every major city you pass in & out of along the way. -Something usually small & cheap to remind you once you're back, of those little inconspicuously uncelebrated things that the pictures/etc just couldn't capture. We both wish you the best, take care & keep the blog posts coming!

Take Care,

Hey Greg--the man on the horse is Marcus Aurelius... if you want more detail, it is now a copy, not the original. Thank-you Google--I now have free lodging at Greg's house! Which means of course I can show up completely unexpected at any time and I can get free food :)
