Picnic at Vallombrosa
This past Sunday, we drove 30 km south-east of Florence to an area between Consuma and Vallombrosa, in the Apennines, for our celebratory Fourth of July picnic.
Tall peaceful trees
This beautiful area surrounded by forests of beech and firs is a perfect little getaway from the summer heat in Florence.
We Read Books
Allison read books – sorry David that Julienne ripped one of the flaps off your Where’s Spot book!
The kids learned how to play croquet and watched while we had two fun matches!
Seriously, give kids some colorful cups and watch them go!
took a lot of photos
Angelo and I felt like personal photographers, snapping photos right and left…I think people started to think we were hired photographers for the day!
played peekaboo while the dads took a nap
I love this tent we bought at Ikea last year, it is so perfect for picnics and beach excursions – gives you shade and has a UV top! You can buy a similar tent at the COOP supermarket or at Decathlon.
Getting mom in the picture
See, here I am or at least my foot! :)
Hope everyone had a relaxing Sunday!
