Florence- Part III
We started in a Florence with a half day where we roamed the streets of shopping and the Ponte Vecchio. We mostly went in so my sweet dad could go back to the jeweler he went to with my mom about 10 years ago and bought her a ring. She has since lost it and has talked about it incessantly, so he wanted to take her back.
|I warmed up to a stranger on the bridge as my sisters did not want to pose with me. How lucky is that gal to be able to pose with me!|

We continued on to the Piti Palace and 'awwwed' at the Boboli Gardens.
|This Palace was built for the Piti family trying to out do the Medicis, but they eventually took over the grounds when the Pitis fell. Yeay. I learned something|
|Mom and dad-- the ones who made this trip possible. Love them to death|
|Il Porcellino-If you rub the boars nose, you are guaranteed to make it back to Florence. Dad has his hand in the mouth?|
In the light of each feud, argument, and frustration, the Smith family came out on top. Five of the strongest personalities pushed through once more only to be a stronger family from it all. Coming together after months of not seeing each other, we departed more in tune which each person's perspective and more love between us than ever. Each fault, idea, and mistake makes my family one of a kind.
