A smile

Pictures from my trip that make me smile.

Brian showing off his sandals with socks. He managed to pack socks for our overnight trip but forgot his shoes. Since it was cold he decided to just go with the sock/sandal look.

Mentanna managed to remember socks and shoes, but her socks were not really the right type of socks to wear with dress shoes. And one of her socks had a hole in it. And when I say hole I mean there was really no heel to the sock at all. And no elastic. Why she still even owned this pair of socks was beyond me. The sock kept slipping down on her foot. After fixing it several times she decided to just remove the sock. Here she is showing off her one sock wearing style. Yep...I was the only one wearing normal footwear. Someone had to look good.

Brian had a little too much San Pelegrino. For those who don't know that's just sparkling water.

Mentanna trying to storm the castle.

Some storm troopers actually paying to storm the castle. Actually these were bikers...in full biker regalia. They were so decked out that they actually made noise as they walked.

In the window of a massage parlor. I love how they have the Asian barbie giving the blonde barbie a massage. Totally cracked me up.

Mentanna marching on the Roman road.

Brian wanted me to take a picture of this tower. Then proceeded to jump in the picture when I was snapping.

Mentanna getting in on the tower action. I believe she jumped in singing "Stop in the name of love, before you break my heart."

Brian just compared himself to a pile of poop sitting on a wall and totally cracked Mentanna up.

Thanks for smiling with me.
