Day 3 and 4...rain

Day 3

We wanted to visit more of Tuscany so we headed to Florence. The clouds were out but we didn't think anything about it. It was a good hour drive but the way to Florence was of course beautiful. 

Once we reach Florence driving to the Dome was a bit tricky. Italy has these signs that does not allow you to drive through the streets and since all the little streets had them we had to find parking and walk to the different locations we desired to see. 

I didn't mind walking around Florence, the buildings were old and beautiful. 

We finally found an old church building not our main stop but mind as well take some pictures. 

While taking some pictures we notice dark clouds coming our way. So we head for shelter and we found ourselves in a thunderstorm. So we found refuge in this old church building which they turned into a museum. 

We stayed indoors for about 45 minutes then we noticed the rain softening up so we bought an umbrella and took to the streets. We couldn't reach the dome but it was still a nice adventure. 

Day 4

Rain continues but we decided to explore Siena anyway. We wanted to see the Piazza then head back to Rome before heavy rain started but Praise God no heavy rain came. 

I'm a little bummed that we didn't get to see more of Tuscany but God has been very gracious with us with this trip. Traveling with two little kids has been trying. S gets car sick all the time which causes her to complain all the time. K is picky with food that's here but at least there's pizza!! There has been a lot of impatient arguing, lack of sleep arguing and straight out arguing. Our sins have been revealed throughout this trip thus far but it humbles me to know that I'm forgiven because of the blood of Jesus. Tomorrow is a new day which comes new blessings. Until tomorrow ciao.
