A Tour of Edinburgh!

Today was a BEAUTIFUL day! We spent the day wandering around Edinburgh and touring the city on a bus. It was a lot of fun to visit Edinburgh and see how it has changed after two years since my last visit to the UK. We returned to one of my favorite places in Edinburgh, the Royal Botanical Gardens. I took way too many pictures of flowers, trees, and grassy hills. I'm afraid this post is going to be very photo heavy!!





Several Buildings from the Old Town in Edinburgh

An adorable tea party in Princes Park! They were dressed up in fancy dresses and had a little spread with fairy cakes & cups of tea.

 A trail called Radical Road leads up to the top of this hillside to a place called Arthur's Seat.

A lovely park across the street from the gardens. There was a cricket game going on, lots of dogs playing catch, and a large group of swans swimming in the pond.

Lots of love!!
