Fiumicino, Italy 11 October 2015
It is always so nice to see my dear friend Uros and his beautiful family, and of course my kids love their Jovan <3 Could enjoy the amazing Italian cuisine all day, everyday! My only complaint is that even 2 beds pushed together are not enough space for 4 kids, 2 adult Rottweilers and 4 puppies!! 😉 lol So much fun at the beach as well- dogs and kids were covered in sand <3 but what a lovely trip!
My handsome little man <3 Ethan INSISTED on traveling in his suit so that he could look “fancy”. <3
Can’t believe I am the Mama of these 3 beautiful babies! <3
OMGoodness!!! Could he be any more adorable in that suit!?!?! Just want to scoop him up every time I look at him!! <3
And if Ethan in a suit was not enough- he just had to pick up a newspaper! <3 Looking so businesslike <3
This menu on the plane is SPOILING my kids (and me! lol)!!
Italy is just such a gorgeous country.
Waiting at the airport for Uros- Ethan and I were the only ones still awake 😉
How can that be comfortable enough for sleeping??
Waiting to check into the hotel is apparently equally exhausting!
Hotel was right on the beach!! LOOK at that view! <3
My kids just flew all the way to Italy and what gets them excited? A Lizard!
JOVAN!! <3 The boys were so excited to come and see Jovan again! <3
Once you have Italian Gelato, you will never again want ice cream!!
Once again, how in the world did I get to be the Mom to these AMAZING kids?? <3 Love you guys!!
The kids had so much fun looking for crabs and other little sea creatures!
When did my little Korbi-bear get so grown up?? 🙁
Had to leave our mark in Italy 😉
Real live quick sand!!
“I am Queen of the world!”
Tahlia says: “Wow, they sell them in stores in Italy?” lol
Ok, so, we are walking around the little town we are in when the kids find a stray cat. In addition to obviously being hungry, he had, at some point in his life, injured his tail. Once I finally convince them of the impossibility of taking him home, they insist we feed him. So we get directions to a local store and walk there to buy some cat food.
1 happy kitty + 3 generous, caring kids who cannot pass up anything in need without being proactive = 1 very proud Mom <3
My extended family <3 Love you Uros, Milica and Jovan. <3
Tahlia’s first time on a bicycle since her accident and it is in Rome, Italy!! <3 It was harder for mom for her to get back on a bicycle than it was for Tahlia.
The beautiful puppies playing soccer on a rooftop in Italy!! How cool is THAT!?!
The beautiful miss Isis <3
Isis is one of those remarkable girls that thinks all babies are hers <3 She took to these little guys immediately <3
LOVE this photo!! Not sure what the little guy was doing, but just shows how gentle my beautiful little Isis is <3
Isis and Bandit. It takes a male as impressive as Bandit to be able to stand (or sit! lol) beside Isis and still look good!
What a gorgeous, sweet boy (the dog is alright too)
Sand all over his muzzle 😉 He and Isis had a blast playing in the waves!
Finally got all the dogs and pups off the beds, then the kids fought over who was going to sleep with which puppy– it was a futile battle on my end and I settled for hoping to find a little strip of bed I could call my own– ironically pretty much the same way I sleep at home!
