Olive’s visit is, sadly, a little more than half way over … But she’s hasn’t left my side yet! Here’s a photo gallery of the antics that we have had up until this moment:
The reason for Olive’s visit here: Gin’s graduation from high school. Gin we are so proud of you and your tenacity to finish this grueling
high school IB program. So that's why we had to include her in some of the photos.
This is Gin walking out at the end of the ceremony with her diploma and with Mr. and Mrs. Tanqueray’s son in the background.

And finally the true essences of the night:
|Yup that is a real kilt - not rented - on|
The Shaker that we bought for him
for Christmas a few years back
|Gotta have a pic of the happy sister |
|The happy parents|

Then the next day, after having a bit of a lie in, we got out and took The Shaker’s mom and her traveling buddies out for a walk around Basel.

A few days later we went to Lake Luzern and had a beautiful cruise around the lake and wonderful lunch to boot!
|School's out for the summer!|
Then y’all heard that we went to Paris for a few days. Can I just say that the TGV train has got to be the best way to travel???
|I LOVE Parisian weather!|
And this is only so far …
And … um … don’t ask about how far we are on our Alexandria Cardigans, ok?
