As you can see from this year's family photo, we are standing in front of the Nina an exact replica of Christopher Columbus' ship. Let's just say that after walking squeezing around other visitors on this not-large vessel, I was very thankful for our home and that it doesn't involve bunkbeds with thin privacy curtains. However, if you are ever looking for your next adventure, I heard they are always looking for people of stalwart adventurous spirit to man this vessel as well as the Pinta! Check out this link!
As with most of our other family photos, this one was chosen by the unexplained providence of each person actually smiling with their eyes forward (which usually happens as often as the kids choose not to fight when presented the opportunity). A fun trivia fact: it was taken by a random guy who told me he was Italian in case I would rather him not take my phone to snap the picture. He made me chuckle.
