Italy, Croatia, and Greece 2009!

So in May/June of 2009 I got the opportunity to go to Italy, Croatia, and Greece and spend 23 days in really amazing places! I visited Rome, the Amalphi Coast/Sorrento, Florence, Pisa, Assisi, Ravena, Milan and Venice in Italy. I went to Split, Croatia. In Greece I went to Corfu, Athens, Mykonos, and Olympia. I had the most amazing experiences sight seeing! The first week we had a rental car, the second week we went on cruise, and the third week we rode the Eurorail train. We had the overall transportation experience. In Milan and Florence, Italy we got the privledge of staying with LDS Italian families, we stayed in hostels, hotels, and the cruise ship. I met a lot of fun people on the cruise from all over the world! It was fun trying to communicate with people in so many different languages. The first day of our trip we were in Rome we left our car in daylight and came back to the car in daylight and our car had the side window smashed out and all of our luggage was gone! So that made for a traveling trial! We lost so much; however, we got through it and bought the essentials to get by the next 22 days. We could of let that ruin our trip but it didn't! Ya we lost cell phones, an ipod, every piece of clothing we liked, shoes, make-up, etc. but we moved on and had a great time in Europe. It was hard to narrow down the pictures because I took so many! Below are some pics from every place we visited in order! I'm so happy that I got to go on this trip! It was amazing! First pictures are from Rome.

Biggest Loser Finale!

I was invited to go to the Biggest Loser Finale on May 12, 2009 in California. I had a great time. I got to go to my first live television shooting and see Dane and Blaine show off their hard work through their awesome weight loss! After the show I got to go to the after party and meet all of the season 7 contestants as well as past people that were on the show. I also got to meet Bob which was really fun! I got to go with my parents, Carli, Cotter, Quinci, and Cruz. The next day we got to tour the ranch and then went and played at the beach! I got to see so many places of the ranch but my favorite was the 24 hour fitness gym! I loved it. Below are just a few pictures from the trip! I'm so happy Dane and Blaine were on the show! It was a great time for them and our family. Good job guys!
