The last two days of our trip were spent in Rome. Our hotel was not as conveniently located in Rome and the transportation was much more difficult there than in the other cities, but after we embraced getting turned around and lost we were fine! We visited the Roman ruins on Sunday and Vatican City on Monday. I enjoyed the ruins, especially the Forum, much more than I anticipated. We were both completely amazed by St. Peter's and thoroughly enjoyed the Vatican. The weather was much cooler and we had to dodge a few rain showers, but we were still able to walk all over the city, eat some delicious food and see everything we wanted to see.
A HUGE thank you to our parents for taking such wonderful care of our boys while we were gone! Knowing that they were in good hands and having fun allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment. It was an amazing trip and we are so thankful for the time we had together and the places we were able to see. Hopefully we won't have to wait another 10 years for our next adventure!
