Well, it's the inevitable here in Scotland. Even it you get lots of sunny days, a rainy one is on the horizon. One rainy day the boys and I were inspired by our animal book. Dan became a zebra, Caleb was a lion (but sleeping at this point), and of course Mommy had to join in the fun so I became a parrot (despite what else I may look like...parrot was what I was going for :)

One of the many tasks of living in Scotland is making sure that you have enough wood (''sticks'' as they say here) for the winter. The boys have had alot of fun helping Daddy ''shift'' the wood to the shed. Here are some pictures of Caleb running around behind our house one fine work day. Also, we've had the please this summer of seeing Gordon almost weekly. He and Joe meet in Dingwall to work at HTC for the day then the two come here for dinner. The boys absolutely love it when Gordon arrives. They also love it when Gordon reads them books....thanks Gordon!
Some of you may remember that I use to love to make cookie bouquets. Well, it has taken me a while to find all of the supplies needed to make them here, but I've finally done it! Some friends just had a baby and this is the bouquet made for their sweet Amy. It's fun to pick up baking and decorating them again. It's also fun because people here have never seen or heard of them before :)
We've been blessed with some wonderful weather this summer and a few weeks ago it was too good to pass up the opportunity to do something fun. Soooooo....we took a bus to Clachnaharry (on the edge of Inverness closest to us). We walked down the pier and then had a great picnic along the water. We ended our outing by playing in the local Kiltarlity school yard. All in all, a perfect day.
