So we made it back home to Alabama and I’m currently at my dining room table going back through all of our images for our last 2 days in Scotland. Those days went by so fast! but I definitely think they were the best of the trip. We spent a lot of time in the car driving between locations, but that allowed us to see so much of the countryside! The day we visited Loch Ness the weather was absolutely perfect. We got a glimpse of Urquhart Castle, perched on the side of the loch, and according to what I have read is around the location where most the Loch Ness Monster aka “Nessie” sightings have taken place. Of course I’m not one to fall for the rumors of this mythical creature, however the sheer 755 ft depth of this mirky body of water makes me think someone couldn’t pay me enough to take a swim in it ๐Ÿ˜ณ After looking at the castle we drove down to Fort Augustus, a small village that offers the best view of the loch. We ate a picnic lunch, Brooks fed the ducks and tested how far into the water he could get with his wellies on. I honestly couldn’t get enough of him in that moose toboggan ๐Ÿ˜

Our last day we drove through Glencoe, and that’s when I truly felt like were in the Highlands! Even though it was pretty dreary, rainy and cold that day, the snow-capped mountains peeking out of the fog gave the scenery an almost mystical feel. We found a scenic stop along the winding road and got out to take advantage of the backdrop for our best group photo of the trip. We nailed it..everyone was smiling, looking at the camera and no eyes were closed..yess! D also got the drone out and got some pretty amazing shots and video footage. We were all taking in the view when we suddenly heard Brooks yell “muddy puddles!” His face showed pure happiness and excitement as he took a running jump into each puddle. ย I have to admit, part of me really wanted to make him stop so he wouldn’t get completely soaked and muddy, but I couldn’t bring myself to destroy his little Peppa Pig dreams. So I just let him go for it! And in the end I jumped in a few with him โ˜บ๏ธ We ended up having to strip him down once we got in the car, and put his pants and socks on the dashboard to let the heat dry them up. ย I like to think Brooks got to check “jumping in muddy puddles in Scotland” off of his baby bucket list ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย I can definitely say on this trip I made some very special memories with some of my favorite people โค๏ธ
