The crowds of people at the basilica were surprising after a week that was so quiet…Assisieven more so when it was the kids… 2010-04-30 2010-04-30 002 063 but the views were still amazing!Assisi Assisi Assisi (first family photo taken by Sophia)2010-04-30 2010-04-30 002 069 The cloisters below the basilica, the original church was founded just 2 years after the death of St Francis…  We spent a lot of time in the gift shop, and Alexandra was able to run around the very holy steps.  (as a San Francisco boy, Troy was very proud…)2010-04-30 2010-04-30 002 071 2010-04-30 2010-04-30 002 077 Lexa was not so helpful with photos at the end of the day, but really quieted down as we entered the crypt of the abbey, and there was a mass going on for one of the tour groups.  She loved listening to the music – who wouldn’t love music in this experience – and made us realize how much we miss our community…2010-04-30 2010-04-30 002 081 Hopefully soon!
