Bologna, Venice, and Work

Most people don't believe that my business travel to Europe is actually work, but here's a photo to prove it...

Of course, while I was here, I did get a little chance to tour a bit in the area around Bologna where our offices here in Italy are located. I've put some pictures from the trip on Flickr.

All the pictures were taken at night and are a little dark (I swear I was in meetings from 8am to 6pm everyday). The highlight of the trip was when a group of us, on a lark, decided to jump in a couple of cars and travel to Venice (about 100 miles away) for an evening stroll around Piazza San Marcos and along the Grand Canal. It was pretty quiet (as we didn't arrive until after 9pm), but it was beautiful beyond description. I can only imagine what it must look like in person during the daytime. I can't wait to return. It is one of the most intriguing cities I've ever visited.

Hard at Work

For Christmas, my dad got a new laptop and he passed his old one down to Max. As you can see, he and Molly are already putting it to good use. The really sad thing is that if you pan this photo back about 5 feet, you'd see Liz and I doing practically the same thing on our respective computers.

Finally, Back to the Soccer Park

It's been too long since we went to the soccer park (almost 3 months!). We finally got back out there today on a beautiful and breezy Spring Saturday. I shot some pictures of the UNC Women v. Duke scrimmage as well as some of my friends' son's game.

But you're probably more interested in the kids...
