A Roman Holiday

An early morning breakfast at The Vatican Museum, allowed us to enter the museum and Sistine Chapel an extra hour before the crowds began. Boy had been reading up on Michelangelo, and enjoyed spotting different characters in the ceiling. We were also able to mail postcards from the Vatican, adding new stamps to our country list. The afternoon took us to St Peters square and another gelato.

Tomorrow promises to be a quiet day for us. Boy had Germany in our family World Cup pool. The prize we had agreed on for the World Cup winner, was an entire day of choosing the family’s activities. Boy’s choice for tomorrow: Minecraft, gelato, and NO sightseeing.

Our book finds at the Vatican Museum:
