Ah, Venice…well, not really

Jill's Journal: We hid out in the air conditioning at the Venetian this afternoon, where the girls enjoyed watching the gondolas cruise the canal in addition to studying the living statues at St. Mark’s Square. As badly as the girls wanted to actually ride a gondola, the price for a family of five was a little too rich for our blood. Someday hopefully we'll take them to Venice for the real thing.

Fun update on Gary and the WSOP: There were 6,598 entrants in the Main Event. Somewhere between 2,000 and 2,500 people have been knocked out so far. Gary’s chip count going into tomorrow is in the top 10% of players, which is a super position to be in. How exciting is that? Stay tuned!

The "living statues" do blink! This guy actually moved quite a bit more than we expected.

Take them on the gondola! No matter how much it is, it's still cheaper than a trip to Italy. Of course the real thing IS the real thing.... Ryan wants to go too--maybe he & Victoria can go for their honeymoon! (Ryan is also planning a trip to Texas for the two of them. He got out the map to plot a course, but decided that they might be better off to fly & just rent a car when they get there.)

I reminded Victoria of Ryan's intentions (which she remembered with a smile) and asked how she felt about a trip to Texas.

"I don't care," she said as she nonchalantly tossed her hair over her shoulder. "Whatever we do, we'll have fun."

I don't know if that should worry me or not!
