A Wee Bit Of Fun In Scotland!

For the past two weeks Craig and I have been settling back into our little routine. Craig is busy at work and school is taking over my life. But we are staying happy and busy. After work and school each day we try and do something fun on the way home. Here are some pictures of some fun things we found in Edinburgh.
We found the little café where J.K. Rowling wrote all of the Harry Potter books! The café is called the Elephant House and it is only two doors down from the library I study at. It is so cute and has newspapers and articles up all about J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter. Very Cool.
Since we are living at the Marriott we are lucky enough to learn tons of cool stuff about the hotel. This past week all the top chefs from the Marriott’s from all over Europe came to the Edinburgh Marriott for a cooking seminar. Since Craig is such an incredible cook and loves to learn about culinary skills we got to go sit in on a few of the cooking sessions. It was incredible. We felt like we were watching a live cooking show. Craig got to wear the whole chef outfit! We saw a whole cow get butchered…. Kind of crazy.
We also went to a museum in town about the city of Edinburgh. Edinburgh has a very dark past. We learned all about the witch trials and the under ground dungeons. There is so much history in this city.
We love every minute of our time over here! We are off to Belgium and Luxembourg tomorrow to meet up with Mark Blake and visit my old home! We miss all of our family and friends and are excited to see a familiar face!
This is the actually cafe where J.K. Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books!

Emily came and visited us! Just kidding, we wish. This girl looked identical to Em from behind, we got so excited. Miss you Emmers.
