2009-06-11/13 Italy Trip

As you might have guessed, our family took a two week trip to Italy. We went with my in-laws and there were ten of us all together ages twelve to eighty. It was the trip of a lifetime and I tried to document as much as I could with photos and videos since I don't know when or if we'll ever have the opportunity to return (although there has been some discussion on working towards another trip in 2011...). I have kept a daily journal during the trip and will post the days in order along with a few pictures and links to the rest of them. Hopefully it will be interesting to someone besides me.

Let's dive in...
