Quiet = Trouble :)

Boo at the Zoo...

Friday night we took the girls to "Boo at the Zoo"...it was a beautiful, cool evening! We met our friends Clay and Mallory (and their kids Payton and Rett) for a "pizza tailgate party" then enjoyed an evening of trick or treating!

Alright mom...I'm ready to go!

Payton and Julian "tailgating"

Julian wanted NOTHING to do with the Star Wars characters!

Allegan County Fair...

The day after we arrived back in the states, we got to visit the Allegan County Fair - Julian LOVED it! She enjoyed the rides and of course, the animals - I on the other hand loved the food!

Let's go guys!

The BEST part of the fair!

Just for grandpa...

That's one big pig!

A Beautiful Goodbye...

I woke up to a BEAUTIFUL sunrise on my birthday - I guess it was Garmisch's way of telling me goodbye...

It went from this ...

To this in a matter of 5 minutes!

And, one last shot of my mountain...with fresh snow!

The site of many a pilgrimage, Assisi is linked in legend with its native son, St. Francis. The gentle saint founded the Franciscan order and shares honors with St. Catherine of Siena as the patron saint of Italy. He is remembered by many, even non-Christians, as a lover of nature. Also the birthplace of St. Clare. The Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi (St. Francis) is also a World Heritage site.

Beautiful Italian side streets...
