Italy with Granny

While my mom was here, we all headed to Italy for a few days. The five hour ride down went remarkably well. Most likely because Granny was non-stop entertainment in the backseat and there was tons of food.




When we got there, the fun just kept going. They goofed around a lot on the floor which was especially remarkable because the tile floor was freezing.


When we got too cold, we turned to board games of all sorta of types and sizes. And complexity. And spontaneously revolving rules.



Jelly Bean tended to focus on slippers to keep her feet warm. Can anyone be more adorable?




Thankfully we all also had the Mr.'s almost constant cooking to warm us up.


Although it rained most of our time there, we took advantage of the one nice day. We got out of the house and into the beautiful little villages at the bottom of the hill and along the lakeshore.






Of course, ice cream and other sweets were included! 



We also took a little field trip to this place. This beautiful, glorious place.









Afterwards we all took a walk....

Like Granny, like grandbaby. 
...and a massive, massive nap. 



Only now, more than two months later, reviewing these pictures, did I realize the gift my mother left behind. Pictures of the entire Steinbach clan. Pictures of small moments of parenting usually missed. THANK YOU for those beautiful pictures, Mom. Thank you.








Two pictures of all four of the Steinbach clan! Amazing.




Thank you mom.
