52 : 9 (part 2)

After London we grabbed an East Coast train to Edinburgh where we spent 5 great days. I studied abroad in Scotland during the summer of 2002 and was so excited to show my boys the city. We stayed in Edinburgh and had a lovely view of the castle from our room. We visited the castle, wandered the royal mile, explored New Town, and went to the National Gallery and the National Museum of Scotland. 

Vacationing with a toddler was a whole new experience, instead of late nights wandering we got back to the room at a reasonable hour with candy and cocktails from the Tesco for adult time after EP went down. Also, leisurely lunch hours turned in to visits to the Princes Street Gardens (where the swing set was AWESOME and obviously not pretentiously concerned with safety like they are here in the states) --- but I can safely say we would not have had it any other way. Ewan was an AMAZING explorer, and aside from a few indicators that he did not love the train, the trip was incident free and we are already planning our next adventure.
