When the crowded milk train stopped at Pompeii yesterday, the Dyers hopped off with their backpacks to visit the ruins.

Thanks to Ansley for this photo.

MM and I schlepped all 6 bags and our two backpacks the few blocks to our hotel.

Are we great parents or what?!

MM had a much needed beer and rest, then he walked back to the train station to meet the kids and bring them to the hotel, knowing how tired they would be after all that walking.

We all went up to the hotel roof top to enjoy some cool air and a bottle of wine before dinner, watching the locals happily and noisily celebrate Italy's soccer win of the day.

Dinner was excellent Italian fare, with a free dram of chocolate liquor afterward. We may go back there again tonight!

We are off to visit the Amalfi coast today by bus and water taxi. It is sunny and beautiful here in Sorrento. WYWH!

Ciao, y'all!

You ARE great parents - but we already knew that. Thank goodness for rolling suitcases. And backpacks. Still, even with that, you went above and beyond!
