Buddy Heisner

Most of you know by now that we have "adopted" an 8 month lab named Buddy. So far he has been amazing. He knows the command sit pretty well and Josh and I are starting to work on others. He stays pretty close to you when he is not on the leash which is a relief to me since we live on a pretty busy road. We got him on Saturday and we took him straight to Lake Barcis to see how he would do with water. He wasnt a real big fan of it the first day. And we attempted to give him a bath on Sunday and he REALLY didnt like that. But yesterday since Josh had the day off we went to a Beach that is about 45 min away (Lignano) and Buddy took to it like a natural. Im glad I dont have a labrador that hates the water : ) He loves Kodi and Kaci and its so nice to have big dogs for him to play with. Well thats all for now, I will keep you all updated on how things are going with him. Enjoy the pictures and the video.

First trip to Venice

Josh and I took the train down to Venice on Saturday. It only cost $20 for the both of us roundtrip. It was nice, I can tell I am going to like traveling by train. Except for when people beg for money and you don't know what they are saying....I know my family is going to love Venice. Warning* It does stink, the rumors are true. Its a mixture of a fishy/trash smell. It comes and it goes, but its worth it. We didn't purchase anything, Im going to start collecting mask as well as glass. We ate dinner on the Grand Canale. I had a margaretia pizza ( a.k.a cheese) and Josh had ravioli's with mushrooms. We asked how much a gondola ride cost and the guy said 100 euro. So we are going to wait until we have someone else to split it with us. But that is something we are defenitly going to do before we leave Italy.

And of course here are my favorite pictures

A little update, as well as some pictures

Well I have survived for over two weeks : ) My car made it, we were able to pick it up on Wed. So that has made life a heck of a lot easier. Josh's work schedule has been easier to deal with so all in all this week hasn't been bad. I think this weekend we might make a trip down to Venice. If so rest assured I will post pictures : )
Here are a few I have taken of places close to us....

First Post as well as first full week in Italy

Hope this finds everyone well. My friend Tiffany helped me create this blog so you folks back home can see what Josh and I are up to over here in Italy. So far things are good, I'm still getting settled in as well as doing a little bit of traveling. So far I have travled to see Toby Keith at an Army base that is close to ours. And yesterday we went to Trieste which is a neat town along the Adriatic coast line. It was so pretty! I was even lucky enough to see a nude beach, gotta love the European ways (you will be glad to know, no pictures were taken of this!!) I will keep this updated as often as possible. I miss you all back home!!!

-These next three pictures were actually taken by Tiffany.
