There’s a lot to celebrate: Paul’s birthday, 4th of July and our first family vacation! So we’re off to Umbria where we’ve rented a small villa for the week. Packing up Phoebe and Carter for seven days of rest, relaxation, swimming, hiking and good food. There’s a lake nearby and lots of great little towns to explore. Plus 0ur place has a kitchen, a pool and apparently 130 hectares of farmland full of trails for exploring. We’re supplying the dog hair.
