The Colors of Rome...

Oh, it's a bittersweet post my friends! Rome was the last place we visited during our two week travels to Europe back in April. It's true...we saved the best for last! So after this post, I guess I'll just have to go on another vacation to share more travel pictures :-). haha.

My favorite things about Rome:
- Meeting up with my sisters (it was the perfect ending to our vacation!)
- The Vatican (there are no words...you could spend days looking at everything!)
- Gelato (if you're ever in the area Old Bridge Gelataria is where you should go--it's right by the vatican and the line was crazy long but if you're pregnant they'll let you go to the front *wink wink)
- Trevi Fountain (eventhough there were tons of people and it was hard to get a good picture...)
- Just walking around Rome was amazing. I just wish it hadn't been so hot...oh my it was blistering.
- Mozzarella di Bufala (this cheese was out of this world...we'd just eat it like an apple as you can see in the photo(s) below ha)
- Visiting the grounds of the future Rome LDS Temple
- The architecture, and the history--nothing beats Rome, Italy.

I will say that by the end of our two days in Rome, I was ready to go home. We were simply exhausted (in the best way possible) and we were ready to see our little girl, sleep in our own bed, take a nice bath and not have to pay for drinking water or using public bathrooms. Oh Europe, until we meet again...
Let's just say this handsome husband of mine is not a huge museum lover...even if it was the Vatican!?!
We visited a family that Josh knew while serving there, where he cooked us a delicious five course meal. I had to laugh because my sisters came along and they thought the first course (spaghetti) was our dinner. Nope, we still had four other courses after that. I thought they were going to die!

The future Rome LDS Temple...just in it's beginning stages :-)

  11. You can just see how tired I was in these pictures haha. Even though we walked around a ton, I was so bloated from the never-ending supply of carbs! So fun, and so exhausting haha
