Here's the Pantheon, outside and in. The structure is original-- 1st century AD. Very awesome.

We were in Rome for over a week! I had been before with my parents and brothers when I was younger, and then on a study abroad experience for a week. I also lived in Italy for a year and a half as a missionary. I remembered a lot of the language, so it was a city I wanted to show Dave. We decided to share out 30th anniversary with our youngest daughters, Julia and Andrea.
The square outside St. Peters
We had a LONG walk to the Borghese Gallery that wasn't too close to the subway.
We said goodbye to our great landlady where we rented our apartment.

Dave's Mom and sister Julie visited us this last week.
In the middle of their trip they saw other family and took in 'The Carol King Show' on Broadway.While Mom and Julie were here, Dave and I also went with Julia and Andrea to the Mormon Temple Visitor's Center where we heard Lindsey Stirling (a dancing violinist) play and speak to us. We had lunch one day with David in Baltimore near his work. The World cup soccer game was televised. We were there for a US game, and there was a lot of excitement at lunch. The staff actually stopped serving for awhile to watch the end of the game!
