Last Day in Rome

On our last day in Rome we tried to go as hard and fast as we could and see almost all of the major monuments (we saw much, MUCH more than this post shows….) But first we started the day like this….. 

Playing with Jakob

A little bit of Jakob time… 🙂

Sitting waiting for the train at Piramide, Rome, Italy

A group shot except I was taking the picture. This was in the morning waiting on the next train.

Ahhh, there we are. All of us!

Look at the Monument!

A lovely shot, thanks to Andrew

Again courtesy of Andrew, this time a shot with Alex going all Lion King, offering his iPhone to the sun gods. Haha!!

Group shot in front of the Colosseum


The backpack took this cool shot with all of us perched on a rock. (Our group split up, one went the  Colosseum route and one went to a market to go shopping. Here you see Andrew, Gus, Alex, Mary, Me, and Christian.) In case anyone was wondering, we kind of like the Colosseum…

Roman Forum

The Forum.

Piazza Navona in Rome

We also went to Piazza Navona and I caught this funny picture.

And to add to the non-stop fun, I caught a constant stream of Mary throwing her coin in Trevi Fountain. So just look at the below pictures…. HA!

Signing the guestbook

Leaving our mark in a guestbook in a church we went in. I have no idea where Andrew was. Maybe taking pictures or something.

Riding the Lion on the way up to the Pincio

Speaking of pictures… On our way up to the Pincio we stopped at this lion and all got up on, with Andrew leaping on last after he started the camera. You would not believe how many weird looks one gets when one tries to take a simple photo on a lion. 😉


That evening, Mom and Dad went to a conference and dinner with some of dad’s colleagues, the kids met up with some (extremely) distant relatives and friends and got ice cream.

Gelato outside of Rome

My cone with dark chocolate and pistachio.

Jasmine flavored gelato

Alex’s cone with jasmine (yes, jasmine, the flowering plant) and pistachio.

It was a lovely way to end an incredible day!
