Edinburgh update

So as promised a few more pictures from our vacation, though I'm not going to bore you with too many of them, since there is quite a few of Jonas, it was after all his first vacation.

 First a picture of some of the beautiful buildings around Edinburgh, I really loved just walking around Edinburgh, it is really a beautiful city.
 After we checked in to the hotel we set out to find lunch, and ended up getting a sandwich at a pub on Grassmarket. Afterwards we realised that very close to where we ate there were a great view of the castle, so we had to get pictures:)
 We also went up to see the castle up close, though not the first day. But since you have a baby on your hands you don't always get to spent time as you would before having a baby. So we didn't go in to see any of the displays since Jonas was starting to get tired, and were a bit loud. Though he thought it was fun looking at the canons.
 One of the days we drove up to (or maybe it's down to, I'm not quite sure) Roslyn Chapel, which is a must to see if you have read Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code". Though there were a lot of reconstruction going on, but it was still fun to see the chapel.
In order to do something fun for Jonas we went to Edinburgh Zoo, and we did get to see the giant pandas, which apparently are very expensive for them to have, since they have to import a lot of bamboo from overseas. Though Jonas wasn't too impressed with the Zoo, but we like it. It was really big, and had a lot of animals.
The next day we were at the park, and there were pigeons, and those Jonas loved... well at least he loved chasing them. So I guess we can conclude that the best things in life are free... or that you don't always have to make a big deal about things, I guess to Jonas it was more fun running around chasing pigeons that sitting in a stroller looking at caged animals, and putting it like that I can't say I blame him:)

Babies and bagpipes...

I'm back, and have been since last Tuesday, but my work just took up too much of my sparetime to blog, but here I am with a short post.

We had an amazing time in Edinburgh, and I got to meet up with Wendy a few times too. One of the times we were walking towards a cafe and came past a bagpipe player. Wendy's little girl had just fallen asleep and were trying to get Jonas to sleep as well, but as soon as they heard the music they both started crying... 

Our conclusion was babies and bagpipes doesn't mix!

I will post more pictures from our vacation another day, but this is all you get for now. Have a great weekend!

Vacation time...

Remember when you were a kid and during vacations you were allowed to stay up later, eat more candy etc.

Well I guess that hasn't changed... this morning Jonas got into the little kitchen in our hotel room and reached up and grabbed the crisps on the counter... and we didn't stop him:-)

After all it is vacation time...

I think I am ready...

Our suitcases are packed, well most of it, just missing the last minute things. So I actually think I am now ready for our vacation:) 

Today is actually my birthday, and at work I had some of the most boring assignments, which I told my boss I thought should be forbidden on your birthday, to which he just laughed, and said it would be nice if it was done before I went on vacation! Anyways it turned out to be pretty rewarding in the end, but I still hope that I don't get those assignments again on my next birthday. 

I was meant to be working all day until 10.00 pm today, but a really sweet co-worker thought that since I had been working all weekend, it was my birthday and I was going on vacation, well she offered a few weeks back to work for me, which I really appreciate now:)

I guess all that is left to say is.... "Scotland here we come!"
