United Kingdom Vacation - Part 2

We left London on a Saturday and flew to Aberdeen, Scotland.  Our friend's Jason and Erin live there with their sweet little six month old son Andrew.  We were so excited to see them and spend time with them.

Here's Kevin making Andrew laugh, or is it the other way around.  He is such a cutey!  Our friend's were great hosts and fed us very well with great Scottish food.  Needless to say, we did not go hungry. 

They took us to two castles while we were there.  The first was Dunnottar Castle which was very near to Aberdeen.  Dunnottar is the castle that William Wallace (Braveheart) famously took in 1297.  The views were breathtaking! 

The other castle they took us to was Crathes Castle.  We actually went inside this castle and saw all the beautiful rooms.  We weren't aloud to take pictures inside though.

And the foliage was just beautiful all around the castle.  Erin spotted this tree, and we just had to take lots of pictures under it.

We had such a wonderful time in Scotland.  The weather was wonderful the entire time we were there.  it was quite a bit colder than we were used to, but it was great. 

Next we travel to Edinburgh...
