Umbria, for a week

Today we started our week vacation in Italy, partly to celebrate Alexandra’s birthday, partly to get to an area of Europe we’d not been before, and to have some fun with Nana & Papa.  But that darn volcano messed everything up.  Cancelled flights, another week of uncertainty, and finally we are on our way. 

However, we didn’t count on awful weather from Munich to follow us South!!  We arrived at our beautiful estate to clouds & cold, but it finally stopped raining & the girls could run crazy outside…2010-04-24 2010-04-24 001 006 2010-04-24 2010-04-24 001 001 We split the drive up into 2 days, left Munich last night after school & spent the night in Bolzano – apparently a very German, Northern Italy town – but we didn’t actually see any of the town because we just wanted to get as south as possible…

Tomorrow it is supposed to be much warmer…
