snapshots of Rome

Just a little proof of all the adventuring my grandparents have been doing.... In no particular order, because that is the order in which they uploaded and I do not want to take the time to reorder them (type A I am not)...

See beyond all the golden hoopla and there is a piece of wood from the manger of Baby Jesus (if you believe). Located in Santa Maria Maggiore.

Having some fun on the famous Spanish Steps

A neat Roman moment.

Cute kid with great-grandparents in St. Peter's Square. In Rome, of course. And, yes. Grandpa did wear the same clothes every single day. I told you they were light packers!
