Romin' on our own...

On Sunday we spent the day Romin' on our own. We walked and walked and walked but enjoyed all there was to see. Spent extended time at sights we had seen but didn't get to linger around.

Pantheon - Brooks and Honey

Incredible column sculpted with extreme detail.

Weird street entertainment...unfortunately they don't move without money.

Trevi Fountain

Throwing our coins in...making the usual wish to come back to Rome!

Borghese Villa and Garden (beautiful huge park, similar to Central Park like NYC)

Old Roman city wall with a very cool cross

Roman Streets

Roman Ruins

Mamertine Prison where Paul and Peter were held before their execution

eerie place but very moving...

Cute hat swap photo!
These two brothers are quite different as you can see by the hats! But both incredible men are extremely loved and respected in the Watkins family!

WOW! Looks so familiar yet so different. How cool that your kids can say they have been there before. Here's hoping to return back to Rome!
