Sp-Italy, Here We Come!


We're minutes away from heading off to the airport.  Ella FINALLY had her last day of school yesterday (June 28th!).  Before our adventures in Italy and Spain begin I want to post some photos of our last week (or two).

We continued to have fun with Autumn in the city while Holden and Grandma enjoyed some one on one time up in Woodstock.

Autumn joined us on a field trip for Ella's school.  Ella was chosen to participate in a science symposium out on Governors Island.  She presented her work on the importance of oysters to the river's ecosystem.

We all met up in Woodstock over the weekend (after a near disaster of the brakes going out in our campervan...).  There was bicycle riding, new waterhole swimming, gardening, crafting, and barbecuing.  Some good quality family time.

Our visit was too short with them, as usual.  But they'll take their time returning back to California with lots of camping and fun stops on the way.

I hope to post photos at least, if not blog occasionally, from our travels.  We will fly into Rome and spend a few days exploring there.  Then we'll head down to Pompeii for a day and night and then drive up to Tuscany and see Assisi, Siena and Florence.  We'll spend a couple days hiking through Cinque Terre and then finish up in Venice.  From there Kevin will fly home to New York and the kids and I will continue on to Spain where they'll spend two weeks in sleep-away camp in San Sebastian, Spain in the Basque region.  My good friend Alina and her son Luke will meet us there.  Luke will join the kids at camp while Alina, our friend Bill, and I will travel around the area for a few days and then fly down to the Canary Islands for a week of beach time.  We've been planning this for so long that I can hardly believe we're about to leave for the airport!
