We got hew some bootiful lilies ..she loves the fwagwance
It was a bootiful day and we went up to the tewwace fow bweakfast

I don't know if I pwefew the wolls ow the cownetti..so it's best to go back and fowfth


just a little mowe pleez

It was satuwday mowning, and I think evewyone who lives in Wome was out on the stweet..this is NOT a pedestwian only stweet ..but they don't cawe, hehehehe

WE got on a bus
The buses awe weally cool

We went to the Museo e Gallewia Bowghese

it's in the Pawco della Villa Bowghese..a bootiful pawk on a hill
These awe some of the mooseum buildings and the gween house
I didn't go in to see the exhibit
These Woman Pines awe so cool...I love them!!!They look like umbwellas
thewe wewe aweady lemons and owanges on the twees in the gawden
Isn't spwing bootiful???

It was wawm, and I got thiwsty
We walked all the way acwoss the pawk to the othew side
kids wewe enjoying pony wides
and the twees wewe in bloom
I saw police on big howsies..a pawfect day fow a wide
hoomans wewe just hanging out and having a gweat day
when we got to the othew end of the pawk, we stopped fow an espwesso
this was the view fwom thewe
A little biped came to talk to me..he only spoke Italian, but we had no twouble communicating
We walked down hill on a winding paf...down to the Piazza del Popolo
Thewe is a big obelisk in the centew(that's like a hooge cement stickie standing up) hoomans sit on the base of it and just watch the wowld go by

Wetawted walking back home along Via del Babuino..it's a supew snazzy shopping stweet that goes betwwen the Piazza del Popolo, and the Piazza Di Spagna
Daddi is splaining modewn awt to me while Mommi goes to get some shoes..hews felled apawt fwom all the walking...honest
Then I wan into a little Westie
All the doggies knew how to speak English, they awe vewy well edoocated appeawantly

back in ouw neighbowhood, neaw the Campo Mawzio, we stopped fow lunch
Mommi asked me if I wanted some pasta....DUH!!!!!
Hewe awe hew new walking shoes..she had to thwow hew ofew shoes away..they litewally fell apawt...I think that's why we didn't gain weight..that's a lot of walking, hehehehehehehehe
acwoss the stweet lokk what they wewe playing in the movies...it No Countwy fow Old Men...we hated it in English, so I don't think we would like it bettew in Italian eithew
the sidewalks awe just wide enough fow one hooman(two if you'we skinny)
This is Via D Convewtite, awound the cownew fwom ouw hotel...Womans like being outside on Satuwday especially...no woom fow caws..I love it!
Thewe is a stowe fow fuwwkids on the left, and just beyond it was one of my pawents favowite westauwants
Aftew a showt nap we wewe off again( this was a long day!)
We walked to the AWA PACIS (MAUSOLEO DI AUGUSTO)...it's the altaw of Peace,,the monument was commissined in 13 BC...in 1999 the awchitect Richawd Meiew designed the glass building to house the monument
The museum is vewy close to the wivew..so we decided to walk along thewe

acwoss the Fiume Tevewe, you can see the Palazzo Di Giusticia
The sun was going down
time fow my daily gelato, hehehe
I went back to the hotel to sneep..I was exhausted..

Happy Happy Anniversary to your mommi & daddi!!!

Whoa! 33 years! They're still a very lovey couple too, I see. Their's is a love story for the ages! (I bet there will be an epic motion picture made about them someday. Maybe you could play your mommi ~ you've got enough spunk to.)

And, you get to enjoy the lovefest by celebrating with them! Very very dolce!

I'm glad you got to meet some Italian hooman pups. Are they nicer than American ones?

I could tell you were very excited about the Westie pup! Even though it's just a photo, I can tell your whole body was wiggling!

Thanks for daily gelato photo. I always look forward to that!

Have fun at Karl's. Can't wait for the rest of the photos!!!!

Goober love & gelato smooches,

Ruby Bleu said...

Hey Asta-girl...

Cat Naps in Italy said...

We are all enjoying reading about your Italian vacation! Our Mom says to thank you for the wonderful Esperia Travels ad!

It looks like your humans had a wonderful anniversary! BUON ANNIVERSARIO!

As for the umbreall pines, they are our Mom's favorite tree. That is why she used one as her logo for Esperia! hehehehehehe!

She noticed your Mom's plate of yummy pasta! She says it is a typical Roman dish. It sure looked good!

And last but not least, Mr. Richard is a favorite architect of our humans. They have traveled all over the place to see his building (including the very one you saw in Rome).

Can't wait to hear more about your trip! We still haven't had a chance to post about your visit. Looks like we will have to use our time machine and go back a week or so!

Much love and see you tomorrow!
Opus and Roscoe

Molly the Airedale said...

You're saved, Asta! hehehe

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Happy Belated Anniversary to your mom & dad!

I think those are like the best pictures ever taken of you!

Petra said...

Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad! Motch & P.A. will celebrate their 33rd anniversary in 10 more months, so they're old like your mom & dad.

Asta! I can't believe you let your mom throw away her shoes when you would have enjoyed chewing them! But you WERE on vacation, and you got gelato every day, so I guess you could let it slide.

Jans Funny Farm said...

A belated Happy Anniversary to your folks, Asta. We hope it was a happy day for them. From the photos, we think it was.

Jan says just looking at all those photos and reading about all the walking you did has exhausted her. So we think we'll go take a nap for her.

Noah the Airedale said...

What a great way for your folks to spend their anniversary...lucky them. That pasta dish your mum ordered looked yummo. What sauce was it...it kinda looked like a blue cheese sauce? hmmmm blue cheese.
Your mum & dad must have done lots of walking for her shoes to fall apart hee hee.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess & Lucy

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Belated Happy 33rd Anniversary to Mommi and Daddi! (But Mommi only looks 33, are you sure it wasn't her birthday?)

Wonderful pics, I am snjoying them soooo much. You got to see the Ara Pacis? Wow!!! SS had to write a whole essay on the politics and propaganda of imperial Rome based on that. No, she hasn't met it face to stone, only on pictures.

Food looks yummmmmmmy1

The rolls and cornetta look really yummy. Mama was drooling when she saw tha picture. Mama loves pasta too.

You really are the world traveller - first Rome now Arizona. We think you should open up your own travel agency.

Happy anniversary, Asta's mommi and daddi! It looks like you had a really great day for the celebration. All that food looks yummy...especially the gelato! It's amazing that all those Italian doggies speak English! I guess we doggies speak a universal language!

Moco said...

We love all your pictures of Rome. It makes us feel like we are there visiting all the sites with you. Dawson says, "I can taste that gelato."
Tell your parents that Grammie and Pappy have been married 33 years last February. Grammie didn't get any beautiful lilies (she loves lilies) from Rome though.

Dexter said...

Asta -
I am tired just reading about your big day. I can't believe you did all those things in the same day.
I like the zippers on your mom's shoes.


COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq said...

Wow, did you and your parents have such a spectacular time. We are all envious (especially Zorra when she saw the gellato). Meeting that westie must have been such a grand time! Your photos are excellent. We have never been to Rome, but now we feel like was have at least seen some of the sites.

You are an excellent tour guide.

Sophie Brador said...

You're really making my mom miss Rome. What a great place for an anniversary!


Deetz said...

No Country for Old Men was horrible my pawents said...they hated the ending! My mum has been enjoying (and also me) all the pictures of your travels. She really loved the Iris flowers, cuz she grows them. Happy Anniversary, Asta's mommy and daddy. It is very pretty in Rome.
We sure missed you Asta.
Paw hugs

BenTheRotti said...

Happy Anniversary Asta's Mummy & Daddy.. woah!! 33 years!! How wonderful :)

Asta, your Mum does not look old enough to be celebrating a 33rd anniversary! neither does your Dad come to that!.. I reckon you must keep them young.

I am so enjoying your stories of your trip Asta, I almost feel like I have been there with you. Thank you for sharing :)

Happy Anniversary to your parents!! That is so cool that they got to spend it in Italy!!! It is even cooler that you were there too! I can't believe your Mom walked until her shoes broke. Tanner would like to know if they sploded ?
