What do Mom's do in Italy? With no Children?

THEY SHOP!AND PRESS THEIR NOSES AGAINST THE GLASS...
AND POINT OUT FABULOUS THINGS IN THE WINDOWS...
AND EAT TIRAMISU & DRINK EXPRESSO IN THE AFTERNOON.
That's what they do in Italy with no children.
Come to think of it, there was no husband either.
I got to spend a weekend with my Mom and her very good friend, C, down in Italy this last weekend. You may wonder that I have been silent alot re: the Blog. No time. That's all.
Between kid stuff, family stuff, visitors and a few days of feeling so-so, I haven't really had any time to update. Even now, I will make this short as I have to go pack for the weekend. This is our "busy travel season" that starts with Spring Break and continues as there are several holidays here in Europe that we try to take advantage of. There's always the chance we are headed back next year - we don't know. But if we are, we want to get some traveling done. I wonder if we'll turn into couch potatoes when we go back to the States?
So - had a great time in Lake Como and, yes, did some shopping. Things can be about 20 - 25% cheaper in the EU countries vs Switz. so have to take advantage of it. And, there are just some really cool things there. Really!
Next week I'll have more time (I think) and will try to post some more and share our adventures.
For those who need to know: Mom and C should be arriving at the Zurich airport right now - headed home. Kris has still not had her baby and it is day to day - bedrest and trying to hang on for as long as possible. She sounded good last night. Waiting for Dr. update.
Caio!
PS - Huge hugs, kisses and Thank You's to my husband who managed the girls so I could go away for the weekend. Love you honey!!! Even brought him something back - ties!
