All Right, All Right, All Right, All Right, ALL RIGHT ALREADY!

So we've had some...stuff...going on. I have been bugged and bothered and bullied into updating folks on our trip to Europe, so OKAY ALREADY!

First, we went to Germany for Daniel's brother's wedding (Aaron for those of you who know, and for those of you who don't, kindly ignore the parenthetical remark). It's a little bit of a blur due to the whole jet-lag thing, but it was a whole lot of fun to be sure. Please note the picture of Daniel, Tim, and Aaron experiencing Germany together.

Second, we went to Greece to visit my long-lost family. They live in a tiny little town (I'm talking chickens and the occasional cow roaming the streets) that is three hours by bus through the mountains from Athens. My family is pretty awesome. They own a restaurant and live above it - they are straight from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. We even got to go see the house my grandma grew up in (it got destroyed by an earthquake).

Lastly, we went to Rome. I was astounded at how excited Daniel was about everything in Rome. He even got up really early one morning and went sight-seeing without me (I'd like to point out that I got up at 8:30 that it's not like I was being lazy). We saw the Sistine Chapel , the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica etc. I didn't know it was possible to see so much in just a couple of days! Daniel even managed to get an awesome picture of "God Creates Adam" before they yelled "No Pictures! No Talking!"

Since then we've been trying to catch up with school and whatnot, so we've been a little behind in the blogging aspect. We beg forgiveness from the blogging world. :)And don't worry, Daniel took about 600 pictures!
