Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona is a city square in Rome, Italy. It is built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium.

As soon as we got back, we watched the movie of Dan Brown, "Angels and Demons"... so interesting to see a movie where I was actually in the places shot in the movie! We also watched "Da Vinci Code"... I love the Vatican City.

She's 12 today!

It seems like it was only yesterday when she came out of my tummy... now, she's practically a lady. Happy, happy birthday to my little girl!!! We love you very much. Hope you are having a blast on your birthday in New York.

Check in the mail

Here's an update on a previous post.

We came home from our holiday Sunday night and Monday morning when we checked our mails, we got the check from the airline reimbursing me for my kids' lost items. You can just imagine our relief! They just paid me for everything that I reported and estimated.

Will be posting photos from our trip soon...
