Day 9: Rome...

The weather today was not as great as it had been the day before on Christmas day. I think the kids were disappointed that had not ventured out into the city with us the day before! But, we still had a great time. We split up; Rick took Andrew & Harrison to the Coliseum to tour the inside and the Roman Forum. I took Janessa & Nathan to the Borghese Park and the Zoo located in the park.

These monkeys were so cute, we could have stayed and watched them all day long. The babies would run and climb on their parents' backs and tease them. They would chase each other around and around. Parents would get territorial of their babies. It was so much fun to watch their little world.

After the zoo we walked through the Borghese park. It is so beautiful there. We had fun playing hide and seek in the trees and running around everywhere.

We took the subway over to the coliseum to meet up with the Rick, the boys, and Mark & Aersta.

Mark & Aersta are the cutest couple! I caught them kissing along a little tourist stand.

We walked all through Rome in the pouring rain. By the time we made it to the Trevi Fountain, the kids were done. We snapped a quick picture (not a good one) and ran into a restaurant to get some pizza. Despite the rain, it was a very productive day in the city of Rome.

Hey Ellen,
It's Sarah! I am on Eliza's account...since I don't ever get on mine! I just looked at your Italy pictures...they are awesome. Looks like you guys had fun. I am sorry that I haven't gotten back with you to do lunch. I have had some "health issues" and haven't done much. Hope all is well with you and your cute family!
