We finally made it to beautiful Texas!
My sweet inlaws flew to Utah,
helped us pack up our 2 cars and the Uhal,
we went to Stadium of Fire and then
left to make our 3 day road trip to Texas.
Everything has gone so quickly this past month.
Once we get all settled in I will post about the road trip and getting here.
our wonderful vacation.
Aaron and I completely fell in love with Europe.
From the Disney cruise ship, to the little streets,
to the food, to the gelato,
to the beautiful cities,
it was absolutely amazing.
After 14 hours of flying,
and missing a night's sleep
to beautiful Barcelona, Spain!
We had a couple hours to tour the city,
before we got onto the cruise ship.
It was amazing.
We got baguettes, gelato,
and went to their market,
where stuff like this was for sale.
Some of it was still alive and moving,
We were shocked.
Who eats this!?!?
I know we look really tired...we were.We got on the ship for the "all aboard" dance
party, and take off party.
aww our very first night on the ship.
sooo happy to be on the ship.
We had to keep each other awake as long as we could
to get on Europe's time.
The characters are everywhere around the boat,
Megan was in heaven.
And if you have every been to the Mediterranean Seas,
you will know that it is absolutely beautiful,
the water is so blue.
We spent the day at the pool, laying out,
and in the movie theater, (where disney movies play all day long)
awww i love my husband
Every night had a theme.Our second night on the ship was the "Prince and Princess" dinner.
All the Prince's and Princess's came to our dinner.Each night also had a show,
and they were like broadway shows,
in the Walt Disney Theater.
My mom and sisters and I before the show.
one thing about this trip we miss,
was the unlimited amounts of ice cream.haha my family would go to dinner, the show,
and then go get more ice cream.
Our very first port of call,
such an amazing country
hahaha one thing to note about Europe,
I fell in love with their little markets.
My family lived in Europe when I was younger,
but it had been so long since us kids have been back,
I had just seen Europe from pictures and movies.
And it looked just like the movies.
haha so cute,
we bought her a little European hat.
Traveling Europe with family,
and your very best friend,
it's the best thing ever.
Leaving beautiful Malta.
Dinner on the ship:)
One of our favorite things was being able to watch the sunset on the water.
awww i love my husband
11 nights of different animals in our room.
haha this particular night was the giraffe.
Day 4, beautiful Palermo, Sicily.

all the bumpers of every car were so beat up,
ha no wonder!
Night #4 leaving Palermo.

Beautiful Rome, Italy.
We took a tour to the major sites of Rome.
Our first stop, Trevi Fountain.

The beautiful Collesseum.
I now understand Gladiator at a new level.

one of the highlights.
I have never had pizza this good.

i would live in Italy for the food.
Beautiful Vadican City.
The Pope happened to be there in the morning,
so it was completely packed.
but so cool to see.
Rome is so pretty.
ok if i lived in Europe, I would buy myself a scooter.
Probably our favorite port of call.
We first took a boat out to the island of Capri Italy.
It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Apparently all the rich celebrities have homes here,
and retire here.
Walking the pretty little Streets.
i fell in love, i want to go back:(
it's absolutely breathtaking.
Beautiful Capri, Italy
Drinking our Granitas:)
We then took a boat to beautiful Sorrento, Italy.
walking the streets of Sorrento.
We ate at the most amazing pizzeria.
i know i say that about all the food,
but it really is amazing.
good thing my dad speaks fluent Italian,
no one spoke english.
Sorrento is absolutely beautiful.
my cute sister and i did some shopping, and made
our Italian purchases.
we were so excited to have bought them in Italy,
until my dad and Aaron started to laugh,
as they read off the shoe,
"Made in Taiwan"
hahaha oh well, they are still cute,
and they remind me of Italy.
We then took a boat to the beautiful city of Naples, Italy
We went to the recently discovered city Pompeii.sooo cool.
so stinkin cute,
she was always holding Aaron's hand.
Day #7 at sea.
such a fun night.
Because it's a Disney boat,
they had the premiere of "Cars 2"
and it was darling.
We loved it.
Aaron thought it was hilarious.
my cute sister and I.They were playing High School Musical 3 on the deck.
ok, quick side note.
Europe doesnt believe in Toilet seats?
I felt like i was going to fall in the entire time.
and also Pisa.
Tonight was the famous
Pirates in the Caribbean dinner and party.
There were fireworks and a dance party that night on the ship. soo fun
These hats were waiting for us at dinner
and of course, Jack Sparrow
Beautiful Ajjacio, Corsica France
we couldn't get enough of them.
oh my goodness i'm in love with their bread.
America needs to have this.
haha so my dad had taught me a little Italian,
like the "thank you" and a couple phrases.
Well this was our first day in France,
and I started to say my little Italian phrases to the girl helping me get the Granita
and she was looking at me really funny
and Aaron leans over to me and says
babe, we're in France.
haha I forget where we were everyday,
it's all so beautiful
I love Europe.
Ok, we went to a beach in France,
and it was so beautiful. The water was sooo blue.
You could see the fish swimming all around you.
until the European girls started to take off their tops. haha

beautiful Villafranche, France
It is the 3rd wealthiest country in the world.
