Picture Perfect Caltagirone, Sicily! We stayed in Hotel Villa Sturzo during a Family Wellness Retreat 5/1-3/09

Mt. Etna
We visited Paestum (1 1/2 hours south) where some of the oldest Greek Temples have been preserved.

One of the many cities on a hill on our way to Bari. Unfortunately it was a hazy day.

How many Elders can you fit in the back of a little Honda? At least four...heehee

We were able to visit with Elder Travis Whinery in Bari Italy. Bari is about 2 1/2 hours from where we live. The drive was absolutely beautiful, and the visit was great.

Bob's first Italian birthday...a little different. A new watch and a new grill...woohoo!!! The birthday boy wasn't smiling so big while assembling the grill :-)

Okay, time to catch up now that we have internet at our home.

Bob unpacking..yippee!!!
