Blogger is acting up on me and it could be because I am posting WAY too many pictures! We had such a great time in Wales! It was a really easy going vacation, well sort of...

We did drive A LOT and when we went on our boat trip we misunderstood the road sign and we came very close to missing our boat. Luckily I stopped an incredibly nice family that drove us to the shore. Thank you to the kindness of strangers, it would have been a horrid day since we were miles away from our car and still miles from the boat. Brady had run ahead of Millie and I and I had NO idea where I was. Not Good.

Cardiff Castle (look close, it was pouring!)

We went to the coolest place called Folly Farm. It was a mix between a wheeler farm, the zoo, a carnival, and and a fantastic park. It was super cheap! This is not the best picture, but it's the only one we took; too bad.

Our "Wales Home" was the most amazing place. Millie likes it more then our home here in England and who could blame her; they had 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 horses. The cottage was in the middle of no where and it was really nice to have no connection to the outside world. We just hung out as a family and enjoyed the peace.

The shed next to our cottage

Wales was beautiful!

We went to the most amazing burial chamber. It was built during the Neolithic Age.

It rains regularly and it was so green.

Millie looking for pirate ships. she's a goof ball.
Her new favorite song to sing is, "if you have a frowny face change it for a SMILE". This is her practicing her frown.

Another incredible view.

I couldn't resist posting this picture of Brady being a fabulous dad..Millie had to go potty and there were no bathrooms in sight.

Beautiful tribute to Codie, it's so wonderful you guys are close.
The pictures of Wales are totally awesome. They look like something out of books that were photoshopped.
Another great experience.

I have the most beautiful grandaughter in the whole wide world. Talk about a personality, she is absolutly funny.
Crouching in the bushes is a very important skill to have, good she learned it. Grandma is very proud
Wales is beautiful and that house is lovely, so is the shed.. I could live there.

I served in North Wales and it was by far my favorite area in my mission. It is so beautiful, and the people are so genuine. I miss it.

Wow that looks so amazing! I would love to visit Wales. I spent one night there once but we just went to some really random outdoor museum. Millie is really such a cute little girl!
