Glasgow Airport and a family visit

I'm sure you will all have seen the pictures of the horrible incident that happened at Glasgow Airport in Scotland on Saturday. There's a link to an article in The Scotsman newspaper here. We have flown into and out of Glasgow many, many times, and my sister-in-law flew here to Colorado from Glasgow on Friday. I hope that the new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is right on top of this and ready to see that justice is served.

So Helen (SIL) arrived on Friday evening and was excited to see the kids - although she did see Jamie just a few weeks ago when he and Iain were back there :) Helen was saying how much of a young lady Nattie is - it has been 3 years since she last saw her, so I can imagine how surprised she was! Yesterday we took it pretty easy (jet-lag is a terrible thing!) and took Helen into Evergreen to show her the lake (see photo above) and also the shops on Main Street. We had ice cream and sat by the river, watching the world go by. After we arrived home, we sat out on the deck and enjoyed the peace and quiet, along with a Mai Tai :) Then Iain grilled burgers for dinner!

So glad you posted this. When I heard about the incident at the Glasgow airport, I thought of you. Glad your family is ok.

Glad your family wasn't involved. Saw that they've made some arrests already.

So sad what happened in Glasgow and London. I also hope that the new PM will make sure that justice is served.
What a very peaceful photo. Sounds like you had a very relaxing weekend.
