Spring is finally here! I love winter because of the holidays but come January I’m ready for the warm weather. In Tennessee spring weather is usually sunny days, stormy nights, highs of 70’s and lows of 50’s. It’s perfect!! With all this perfect outdoor playing weather I thought I would write out some of the things we want to do this spring and some activities to do with your kiddos! Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
On March 7th we started our amazing journey across many countries for 2 months. During these 2 months we will be visiting Scotland, Wales, France, Austria, Italy, and London. Scotland was our first stop and we will be leaving here on Monday. So with our trip to Scotland coming to an end I thought I would give you all a little recap of our trip.
We started off the trip by visiting the grocery store and shopping around stores. Their grocery stores are a lot smaller here! Most are the size of a convenience store. We also found the cutest outfits for Avery (I posted a photo of them on Instagram). The kids clothes here are too cute! People in Scotland for sure spend most of their money on their kids! All the kids here have the nicest strollers, cutest clothes, and fancy coats! We also went to 2 villages here, Callandar and Edinburg. We visited an old castle in Edinburg. (The old prison there smelled AWFUL!!) The villages are so small and there’s one church in every village. And we visited a gorgeous Catholic Church. We walked around it and of course Avery decided while we were inside of a super quiet church it would be a good idea to scream! Haha thankfully no one was too irritated! We also drank lots of coffee!! The coffee here is amazing! They use different cream and it always looks so pretty! The food here is also very different! They have some of the same things but it all tastes different. The cheese is stronger and most of their things have a hint of cow taste to them. I would not consider the food in Scotland being my favorite food of this trip but the chocolate is really good! Avery has been loving the huge kinder eggs with princesses in the them.
Josh has had to work 2 expos while we’ve been here so we’ve been hanging out at the apartment sometimes or walking around the city. It’s pretty cold here and people walk everywhere so we are adjusting to that. Josh and I were able to get in a date to Tick Tock Unlock which was so much fun! It’s this mystery game where you get locked in a room for 1 hour and you have to use all these clues to unlock different things and eventually use the keys and codes to unlock the door. We got to bring out our inner spies haha. From playing that game I learned that Josh is WAY smarter than I am and that we work great together under pressure! We finished with time to spare and we were in the top 10% of people that finish because it is rare to have a group of 2 finish.
