8 hours in Milano

Layout info:
This was the day that the kids and I had waited for for 2 months. Finally getting to go to Italy to be with daddy again. It took us 24 hours to arrive there. We had an 8 hour lay over in Milano which turned into 10 hours due to fog in Venice. Me and the kids ended up sleeping on the hard tile floors and later would find this comfortable chairs in the boarding gate area. Sad thing about all the waiting around was that hour new home was only 3 hour drive from Milano!
