Got out on the bike this morning briefly, looking forward to more cycles around the city over the summer, hope for lots of days like this! We are all off to Aberdeen and Stonehaven tomorrow for the weekend - anyone got any tips for things we definitely need to check out while we are there?

Brilliant 24 hours in Brussels to end our weekend trip to Belgium, so fun to follow these two around the city taking a few photos, eating all the food, enjoying someone’s first St Patrick’s party (party = us drinking beers and reading while he sleeps). And Rowan has taken all the travelling and sleeping in new places totally in his stride, which gives us plenty confidence for all our travels this summer. #brussels #belgium #waffles #frites

Get up early, beat the crowds, enjoy all the sights on our own, back home for an early nap before coffee, custard filled pastries and books on the sofa. And then we get to relax and drink beers in the pub while everyone else fights for room to get a selfie on the edge of the canal 😊👋🏻 #inbruges #visitbruges #wildeadventures

Travelling with a baby has definitely changed the way we do things - not so many miles are covered running around the city taking photos and stopping for unlimited coffees / beers, and a lot more naps than usual. But it’s amazing how resilient Rowan has been, dealing with a 4am wake up for an early flight, travelling for hours by taxi, plane and train, walking around in the rain, and letting us put him in the carrier for every little sightseeing / food trip outside, and sleeping in a new bed. So it’s definitely a change, but still the same fun and even more meaningful making memories as a family of three.

For the best and most international woman I know, who humbles me on a daily basis with the love and patience she shows to our son. Our son, who is now 5 MONTHS OLD. 5 months as a family of three and two months until I leave my job of 17 years so I can spend a summer being just a dad. I can’t wait.

Sunday’s are for chilling in an ocean of blankets and trying out our brand new crib (with a few tears at how fast someone is growing up and moving into his very own room 😭) #sundaylounging

Who doesn’t love a Defender? Especially when it’s out in the wild rather than doing the school run through Edinburgh. Got a chance to get one super muddy today - and stand on it / jump off it! - with the guys from @4x4adventuresscotland up by Loch Lomond. Some pretty technical driving but oh so fun and the scenes were spectacular once the cloud lifted, giving us views across Loch Lomond and Loch Long to the Cobbler and Arrochar. Brilliant experience.

The best parts of my day right now - the huge smile when Rowan first wakes up and sees me, bath and massage time (definitely his favourite part of the day 🛁), or lunchtime family meet ups for coffee - made even better with views like this. Everything else is just filler... 😊

Such a beaut of a day here in Edinburgh, couldn’t miss out on a run around Arthur’s Seat on my lunch break. I sat a run, I mean a light jog, mostly walking, with lots of photo stops. But it still counts! ☀️ #edinburgh #edinburghcastle #IGersEdinburgh #edinphoto #loveedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #visitedinburgh #edinburghlife #exploreedinburgh #holyrood #arthursseat

I guess if you’re going to get stuck on a chairlift for 30 minutes on a mountain I’m not sure you could think of a better spot than this right?! Back to reality with a bang today, would take being stuck here over the office any day... #avoriaz #avoriaz1800 #snowboarding #portesdusoleil #alps #france #morzine #lovemorzine

Fresh tracks, last full day. Heading back to Scotland tomorrow, gutted to be leaving but can’t wait to see Lauren and Rowan, a week away is too long! Been an amazing week in the Alps, perfect conditions and great company. #portesdusoleil #alps #morzineavoriaz #morzine #snowboarding #france

Definitely pushed ourselves too far today, definitely should have worn sunscreen, and definitely not going to take on the 90% vertical Swiss Wall again. Well worth it for these views though. Ready for a well earned dinner of melted cheese at our favourite Morzine restaurant (Le Grange, if anyone is interested) and maybe a couple of beers at @cafechaud.morzine. #morzine #snowboarding #portesdusoleil #alps #morzineavoriaz #swisswall
