After Pisa we spent a day in the Cinque Terre. It was lovely and so nice to be outside away from the city. Hyrum already posted about the Cinque Terre so I won't elaborate.
I spent a really long two days getting home to Pittsburgh while Hyrum stayed for his conference. The kids didn't care much that I had been gone. They were actually quite disappointed that mom was back and grandma was leaving. There was a lot of work to be done and things to get ready though.

|Big kids were hiking with Dad so, little kids went hiking with Mom. 2.5-3 miles.|
|Starting solids. He loved it ; )|

We spent the next month finishing up school and getting ready for our crazy, awesome summer we had planned. We had ten days between our two big summer trips so I was trying to get as prepared as possible for the second one while trying to pack and getting for our trip to Texas. I'll explain why later. It was a busy month.
