I have photos… lots and lots and lots of photos.
I will post them as they are ready to be posted, please be patient with me and check the Gallery often. I plan on posting them to the Gallery as they are ready, it will take a while to get a written blog post edited and up about the trip.
For now, here is one of my favorites. It is from our first day of travel in Scotland. I didn’t edit a thing! Scotland is that beautiful and we were that happy.

Last Saturday was our 10th Anniversary date. We had big plans for our 10th anniversary since we did a small honeymoon (roller coasters at Cedar Point) and have never taken a non-work related vacation together just the two of us. The dreams started with an Alaskan cruise, then it was Jamaica, then it was Colorado, then a cabin in MN, then a hotel in St. Paul. Notice how each plan gets smaller and a little bit closer to home? What we ended up doing was a 7 mile canoe trip down the St. Croix River. The 10th anniversary gift is aluminium, so the canoe trip, as downsized of a celebration as it was, was the perfect way to mark the occasion.
We are 10 years older. We have a 10-year-old mutt, a 9-year-old son that has taught us what being a parent means, a 7-year-old son whose mischievousness keeps us on our toes, a 5-year-old daughter that couldn’t be a better example of “what goes around comes around” and a cat that we all fear. It has been an adventure. A great adventure. And it just keeps getting better.
Cheers to us!
