After our week in Italy, we actually headed on to Greece for another week. We just got home yesterday. My mother-in-law and stepfather-in-law have a vacation home there, so we stayed with them and spent the week bumming around the local beaches and towns.

The big draw, the real reason we were in Italy last week, was to see Venice. I’ve been to Rome, and I did an art librarianship course in Florence in grad school. I love Italy. But I’d never been to Venice.

Our last full day in Italy, we drove almost three hours to Maranello, home of all things Ferrari. The cars are built there, the racing teams are based there, and we went to the Ferrari Museum there. Which was just stuffed full of beautiful red cars.

Our first full day in Italy, we headed to Treviso, which was actually the closest city to the house. It’s much smaller than Venice, and we were there on a Sunday in August. It was practically deserted, but we ate some pizza at Pizzeria Sant’Agostino di Mansi Patrizia, and it was so good I’m still thinking about it, and we wandered the streets. Treviso has a mini canal system like Venice, it was fun to just walk along the water and in and out of the streets.

I  haven’t posted for a while, but it’s summer, and work has been in full swing, and we’ve been gearing up for this European vacation before school starts. We spent the week with some of my in-laws, including my brother-in-law Thomas, at a villa outside of Venice. It was an exceptional week.

Other posts on this trip: 10 Years Married!, Mexico’s Croco Cun Zoo.

The two outings we’ve done on this trip have both been animal centered because Hannah is a deep animal lover. Like, owns several vet doctor’s kits, loves Doc McStuffins, treats pretend animals, and has been making us play “water hospital,” a game she invented, in the pool through this entire trip. So yesterday it was the Croco Cun Zoo, and this morning she and I swam with the dolphins at Delphinus Puerto Morelos.

We haven’t left the resort in 4 days, but this morning we headed out to Croco Cun Zoo, which is right nearby. It was so much fun! It’s an interactive zoo that used to be a crocodile farm. They have more than 200 crocodiles hanging out around the place. It’s not a wandering zoo, you get a guided tour (and bring tip money, our guide was well worth it). It takes about an hour to walk through, but you pet some very cool animals that are almost all local to Mexico. They also take in rescues and confiscated animals that people used to keep as wild pets.

Today was our 10th wedding anniversary, I can’t believe how quickly that went. It feels like we’ve lived such a lifetime since our wedding day, but also…it was brief.

We’re celebrating in Mexico. This month is a whirlwind, with big, exciting things happening I’m not quite ready to announce yet. But I’ve also been planning and preparing for this trip, so I really haven’t posted much. I’m working on that, but for now. This is where I’m at.

Other posts on this trip: Heading to Mystic, CT, First Full Day in Mystic, and Thereabouts, Our Second Day in Mystic.

I took a break from posting for a few days to finish a deadline. But last Saturday was our last day in Mystic, and we spent the morning at Olde Mistick Village for their Easter egg hunt. Which was such a great last thing to do before we left, if you’re ever in town for any of their family events I really recommend it. We packed up the car and brought Hamilton to their apple orchard with us, which he loved. He was a big hit with many of the little kids out there for the egg hunt, and he was just so excited for sunshine and adventure.

We really only spent two full days in Mystic, but on Good Friday we had a lazy morning at the hotel and then headed out with Hamilton in tow to grab lunch. We went to Sea View Snack Bar, right down the road from Mystic Seaport, and sat outside with him eating lobster rolls, french fries, and hot dogs. He had his very own hot dog, he was in his doggy glory.
