living in italy: mille miglia

IMG_7677

It's not every day a parade of Ferraris drives down your street.

Up until yesterday afternoon we had never heard of Mille Miglia, a vintage car road race that takes place in central Italy and, as we learned, is pretty darn big deal. Our street happened to be right along the route and it was pretty amazing to see the cars go by.

Here's the thing: the parade/race took a few hours to go by our house. Rob -- in a special version of boy-heaven -- went next door to the grocery store, bought a can of Budweiser and watched the event with a permanent smile on his face. Hilarious!
