Olympia was the first to seek, as Alexis hid. After searching for her father, Olympia finally found him. And then Alexis counted till 15 as Olympia hid.

“You caught me, good job Olympia it’s my turn to seek. Ready or not here comes papa. I’m gonna find you, Olympia, wherever you are,” Alexis said as he was seeking.

While searching, Alexis heard a few giggles from Olympia. As she giggled, Alexis quickly found her under a pink blanket on the couch.

“I know I heard something Olympia where are you. I know I heard her but I don’t see her, she’s got to be somewhere around here. Maybe she’s here, wait no hold on wait a minute what is this pink blanket doing on the sofa, Olympia I found you I found you.”

Serena had traveled to Rome with her family. Interestingly, it is in the Italian capital where Alexis and Serena first met in 2015. They are staying in the same hotel, Rome Cavalieri hotel.

“Every morning here in Rome I’ve come back to where my life changed forever for a cup of coffee just like I did that fateful morning. Now there’s a spunky 3-year-old with me who’s my everything. Life is unexpected & beautiful.”
