Bible reading & panda visiting...

Last week we finished reading the whole Bible to my 8 year old. He was really pleased to have finished after three and a half years (we started when he turned 5).

As we did with his older brother, we presented him with a new Bible, and I took him on a special trip.

He has always loved pandas, so I took him to visit Edinburgh zoo. This was quite an expedition, involving two long days of travelling and two overnight stays with family and friends - but he had a wonderful time.

Seeing pandas was the highlight of our trip to the zoo:

We also enjoyed watching the penguin parade:

And the koalas:

Although we went for the zoo, spending time first with some family, then with some friends, was also hugely fun for both of us.

We arrived home not long ago - and have both been missed! We'd love to return to Scotland for a longer trip sometime - but take the rest of the family with us.
