Really, our 5-hour train ride through the United Kingdom couldn’t have gone any better, thanks to our riding partner Sid, who sat behind us, keeping Kassie occupied!  What a welcome new friend... he even looked a bit like Bumper. 8-)

We loved seeing the English countryside whiz by us, as we traveled up the coast looking out at the North Sea.  What a treat to enter Scotland and see the rolling green countryside dotted with sheep – simply gorgeous.  And our next ‘first’ – driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road! When we got in the car, Kassie said a prayer, asking God to “help Daron drive us through the sunsets of happiness.” Oh my word, hilarious.    (Look at the kids' faces peeking out... I think they were a bit afraid of the upcoming drive. And Daron admitted later he was quite petrified at that moment... but he did a great job driving!)

The Marriott Dalmahoy Resort – a perfectly fairytale-like castle in the Scottish hills. Complete with gorgeous wild landscaping, a great work-out room (which the kids wanted to do the treadmill because it reminded them of Grandma and Papa’s treadmill) and a huge gorgeous pool. Thanks, again, to Daron's travel points.
