What a wonderful place to spend time with your gentleman. Drink some green beer for us.

OMG, pizza in Italy! What could be more perfect!
So the reason the Leaning Tower leans is because of all you doggies overloading it? We never knew that!
See you at the wedding tomorrow!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Cat Naps in Italy said...

What a beautiful little cottage! We had to laugh when we saw Momo and Sassy's room cause ours looks JUST LIKE IT!
We had so much fun with you in Pisa. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

And don't worry about that extra slice of pizza. That darn tower has been waiting to tip over for centuries!

A domanni!

Daisy said...

I was a little bit worried when I saw everydog and cat on the Leaning Tower of Pisa! But maybe it is a good thing that it got broken so they can build it right.

That pizza looks delicious!

Petra said...

It looks like another wonderful trip for you, Asta! Do you work as a travel agent in your spare time while your mom is painting? You always find the most amazing places to go!

Jan Price said...

Well, it looks as if you have all had a very exciting first day. Can't wait to see what other mischief you get into. Try not to break anything else, though.

Have fun.
