Epic Adventure Day 2

Took it easy this morning and then headed over to our cruise ship. The girls think are cabin is cool. Kailei will sleep on a bunk bed so she is looking forward to that. 

The girls didn't sleep that well so they are took a nap. Zeb and I slept great so we explored the ship. So much to do, so little time.

I spent some time on deck reading while Zeb explored even more if the ship. We met up with Grammy at the emergency drill orientation. 

Got comfortable with our quarters. Unpacked and hit the hay.

Epic Adventure Day 1

After a weekend of scrambling to get ready we left Denver around 11am yesterday morning. The dogs were left in trusted hands and our vacation was finally here. 

Mark took us to the airport which was nice so we didn't have to pay for parking for three weeks. Kailei started off with a stomach ache. My guess it was nerves but who knows.  The plane rides were fine. 

Unfortunately most of us could not sleep so we arrived exhausted. We were grateful to have a hotel shuttle pick us up so we just had to look for our name. 

The driver took us to Hotel Traino in Civieavecchia. We immediately napped. 

When I finally got everyone to wake up we ventured out. Made our way on various streets down to the ports. 

Grabbed a little lunch (McDonald's) and then visited a fort that Michelangelo built. We also walked out 
onto a pier. It was lovely although hot. I didn't last long before I needed to be in the shade. 

After relaxing so peacefully we made our way to a restaurant. Enjoyed pizza margarita on the patio.

Now trying to stay awake  but the sand man is winning. Good night!
