Plus I need to merge in reubens as well so easy to say that we have around 2000 photos of Italy, Amsterdam, and Haarlem. Over the course of the summer I will show you what we saw! wow.

Oh wait---I lied. this is actually the first picture! This was in the Houston airport by our gate. Imagine- buying an ipod from a vending machine!!!

birdie likes a sandwhich

We tried something new today.... just letting her hang out in the living room with G. both
girls loved it! (lol we are assuming she's a girl.) Jake (or Fuzzy depending on the day) definitley likes eating bread, and enjoyed a chunk of G's sandwhich.

a picture I took of G.

Nonni brought a surprise

It's huge! Nicolas says it's not his surprise because he can't get on it! lol You have to physically pull yourself up onto the step part of the slide. Well, Nico doesn't have the upper arm strength to do that! I had to push him up onto it....Needless to say my upper arm strength will increase as well this summer!
