Here I am, engrossed in my favorite vacation activity:
So, we'll take the 12:40 boat to Isola Madre, where we will wander around and enjoy the gardens for exactly one hour and twenty-five minutes, then catch the 14:20 boat to Stresa where the kids can play on the playground for fifty minutes before we catch the 15:40 boat to Santa Caterina del Sasso...
I'm not sure anyone else in the family enjoys lake boat rides as much as I do, but they did OK:
We sure are riding a lot of boats on this trip...
But we all got to enjoy a lot of gorgeous scenery. Here's Nico at Santa Caterina del Sasso (a three-building hermitage built into the side of a cliff):

and on Isola Madre:
Leo is a lot more reluctant to be photographed than Nico (unless he's playing "Angry Birds"), but my husband got one picture of both boys touring the botanical gardens:
Our imaginary universe is even more fun than all these gardens our parents keep taking us to!
