Early this month we had to make a trip to Scotland's capitol city, Edinburgh.
Pronounce it like "Ed-in-bur-a" so you don't sound ridiculous.
Ask me how I know.
We were obligated to go because that is where the closest American embassy is and we had to go there in order for Miss Airdrie to become a US citizen, get her report of birth abroad, passport, and Social Security Number.
We were too worried about that last one, just the first 3; ______ insert political comment here.
While Edinburgh is just under 200 miles away, in Scotland that means a good 4 hour drive. In order to make our appointment at the embassy without hauling 4 children out of bed at 4 a.m. we went a day early and stayed the night at a hotel. This was a super awesome decision on my husband's part because it made for a nearly stress-free trip!
Here are some of the fun sights for you to enjoy a glimpse of Scotland!
On the way down we choose to take the route through the Cairngorm Mountains.
