"We're all going on a... Summer Holiday"

It's late at night to be writing and all I have access to is my Dad's iPhone pictures, but I didn't want you to wait any longer, so I'll make you a deal. I'll post some quick pictures from my awesome holiday in London, France, Venice and Tuscany now - and I'll promise to post some more later from our better camera.

We had three fun-filled days and nights in London to start the trip off right - the first of which we spent at Grandad and Judith's as they hosted a terrific open house. We then went to France to live in a Chateau for five nights with 35 other wonderful people for Mike and Danielle's wedding! Congrats and thanks again guys!

After that, we took an overnight train to Venice - the train itself being quite an experience! I got the top of three bunks and loved every minute of it - finally a hotel room built for people my size. In Venice I was officially captained, had multiple visits to Caffeteria Doria with my Dad, did loads of walking and looking with the family and even dressed up here and there. With no cars on the islands, we were free to run through the streets like runaways (watch out for Italian elbows though).

After Venice, we took another train to Tuscany where we met up with more and more family for a week of eating, swimming, relaxing and learning Italian. It was an amazing trip with languages, endless soccer games, and new foreign sweets as the highlights. You should come with us next time!
