Vatican City……..The world’s smallest country

Thursday’s adventure included a fast pace visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. You can’t possibly enjoy Museums of such magnitude and beauty in a day, let alone 3 hours. It just isn’t possible. If you’re rushing because your six year son is complaining loudly (making his displeasure known to all ), you can forget it. So you don’t really get to appreciate this wonder that is VATICAN CITY. One can always try. It was a long afternoon. Jordan was so unhappy. He wanted to be anywhere else, but the Vatican. He started asking for exits immediately. Unfortunately, once you are inside the Museum, it’s not easy to get out. It was so crowded. You were just moving through people. This is another sight that I will have to come back to see without CHILDREN.

I am not forgetting Alexandra and Janel. At this point, they are perfect little ladies. They pretty much go with the flow. Alex just wants to be carried when she gets too tired. She has no problem falling asleep on her Daddy’s shoulders. She gets excited about everything. However, she does feed off of Jordan’s emotions at that times. But her crises don’t last. Janel is a typical teenager. You can’t tell whether or not she’s happy, content or miserable most of the time. She’s not rude about it. She’s just quiet. Of course, I can’t say enough about Christopher. He’s our rock. Thank God for him; he keeps me sane. I know you don’t see too many pictures of Christopher. There’s a good reason for that. He’s the family photographer. He’s usually behind the scene……(Between you and me, I think he’s afraid that I may drop or loose his camera. So he hardly lets me hold it. His fears are real possibilities….lol….).

    Love the pictures of Vatican City. So beautiful! Tell Christopher he has to get in front of the camera for a while so we know he is really on the trip with you 😉 looking forward to seeing more! XO

    About teenage behavior I can tell it, you have to take Sofia with you. Lol. And I agree with Chris about to handle the camera because you lost the other one in NYC. LOL

    The pictures of the Sistine Chapel are breath-taking! I am at a loss for words. One day when the children are much older, they will appreciate all the pictures of them, not only in Roma but, all over Europe. To know that they were there, priceless! They are blessed to have such wonderful parents!

    I don\’t know wether you did it on purpose or not. But it was nice seeing the kids in the bright yellow in such a large crowd of people. You can spot them a mile away! I still do that now:)
    Great Pictures! Thank you:-D

    In 1981 I went to the Vatican. I had with me charity money (given to me by friends for a safe journey to Italy). Having just lost my mother and my sister-in-law I decided to leave the money in a charity box while there. I could not find one in that mass of people. Along game a nun……from New Jersey can you believe!….opened up a private chapel. We lit candles in their memory and I left the money in a box in that chapel. I built a memory then and now you are all building yours. Enjoy! Love……Carol
