E is for EVERYONE...

and their mother! I think that is who was in VenicE over the last week! February 6 - 16 was Carnevale di Venezia.

It's time again for Alphabe-Thursday and this week we're doing the letter E (Oops, I missed the letter "D" last week - I was on a field trip!). For information on Alphabe-Thursday and a list of participants visit Jenny's Blog.

I went with two friends the day before it started. Then again on the Eleventh with my 2 oldest and 5 other teenagers. It was a field trip for their art class. How COOL to go to VenicE for a field trip, right?!

Here is Everyone trying to walk around the flooded St Mark's Square.

Here I am in my crazy hat that I wore all day - Partly to Embarrass the kids, partly to keep me visible and partly to keep my head warm! It was a cold day! (I know - I am a complete dork!)

Back again on February 12. I went with another friend and we got our faces painted!

One of the pretty costumed people around Venice during Carnivale.

ValentinE's Day - To Venice again with my swEEtheart!! We went together. Alone. And stayed the night!

Even the view from the HardRock Cafe is cool!

I heart Venice!!
