some might call it perfect weather

The weather has been nothing short of spectacular lately. This past weekend was especially nice. On Saturday we lounged in Boboli Gardens for a few hours trying to put a little color on our pastey skin. We saw an Alan Alda look-a-like while we were there (can you tell we're on a West Wing kick?), but thankfully we realized that it wasn't him before Rob asked for an autograph -- as Hawkeye of course.

We continue to be perplexed, however, by the random mid-to-late-afternoon rain storms here. At least 3-4 times per week the sky gets dark, the rain pours and in five minutes it's all over. It's a lot like living in the midwest or South in the summer, actually.

Anything exciting around your neck of the woods?
