Ciao! Stiamo a Milano!!!

So we are finally here!!! We arrived last night at 8:30 to the hotel. The girls did really well on the plane. They slept about 6-7 hours on the plane and played the rest of the time. They also have a new-found love for JELLO!!! Mom told them that she could make that for them at home. We had to wait for Kami at the airport, as she was flying from Barcelona to meet us. Then our driver took us to the hotel and we checked in and went to dinner. We ate at a great little restaurant around the corner that served pizzas and pastas (surprise surprise) and Dad got to practice his Italian which would have left us with fizzy wine and seafood pasta...not exactly what he was going for. Marinara sauce here means the sauce has seafood and he was looking for a wine that wouldn't be too sweet so he picked one based on the name...we sent that back and got one of the house wines! Other than that, it was a great dinner...until Emma started to fall asleep while eating...poor thing :( We wanted to take a little stroll after dinner, but we only made it around the block, as we were being eaten alive by mosquitos. This morning, Meghan and Kami woke up at 7am and got dressed and ready, thinking that the rest of the fam would be up and going to. We knocked and rang the doorbell to their room, but we got no answer. So we thought, "Hmm, typical...they got up and went out for breakfast without us!" So we walked around the block to the cafes we knew of, thinking we would find them there. Nope, not to be found anywhere. So we asked the front desk if they had seen a couple leave with 2 chinese babies and they said no, so we called up to their room and they were in fact STILL SLEEPING!!! we were like, hello, why didn't you answer the door?!?!?! When we got upstairs, we found them all four still sleeping in bed! Well, that's it for now, we are off to explore milan! Ciao JET LAG AT ITS FINEST!!! 9:34am and still sleeping...of course, they didn't really go to bed until 4am :)
