home from the homeland

Our Scotland trip has come and gone and taken June with it.  I can't believe it is already July and this trip we have been anticipating is already over.  Life better slow down soon or I am going to wake up tomorrow with Baby K heading off to college......ahhhhh.

Fortunately we should still have 18 years and many more trips before that happens.  They just may not be to Scotland.  This was a very fun and special trip we took with Bran's family to visit his relatives there.  His grandparents came over from Scotland soon after they were married but have remained very close with their family and so have we.  I hope we can introduce Baby K to everyone someday and show her the homeland but in the meantime these photos will have to do.

Customary stop in the town of Keith on our way to Spey Bay.

Next stop, the beautiful Faskally House.  It is an old family estate turned Christian camp.  This is where we gathered as one large family for the reunion.
It was perfect and although the weather wasn't it was still beautiful to walk around along the river and countryside.

On our way back to Aberdeen we stopped by my favorite castle, Dunnottar Castle.  The castle of the Keith clan.
It is so beautiful overlooking the sea with steep cliffs on most sides.

And finally I have to share some cute cows that modeled for me.  They aren't the native highland cows that I was hoping to find but they are still pretty funny.

good memories from a great trip.

Ohmygoodness, this is hilarious. I was looking for baby shower ideas on pinterest and landed on your blog. Then I realized your husband's name and face looks so familiar! That's because I grew up with him! Our mom's were besties, and I probably haven't seen him since elementary school! So funny! Yall's family is precious!
