Spring break family vacation in Italy....
Venice in five days over spring break in 2000. While the weather
didn't choose to cooperate on our trip (cold and wet), we saw a
great deal in a short period of time. This trip also marked my first use of a digital
camera, so many of the pictures on these pages are less than perfect.
