This weekend the family took a trip out to the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA for 150th anniversary of the Scottish Highland Games! I really want to go to the whiskey tasting next year, kind of missed it this but next year.....its on!
There were sword fighting, history lessons and above all....red headed Scottish women! Thank god for my South American princess to keep me grounded lol!
Here we have the kids and the wife holding a few battle worthy weapons. Lucas was barely able to hold up that sword!
I am not sure what they are protecting here but I loved their outfits!
I have been to numerous fairs and gatherings that sold sold pewter mugs, and I finally broke down and bought me one! I also bought me the belt clip, what man would be complete without a belt clip for his beer mug?!?!
I also broke down and bought me and the kids our own kilts! I am Irish/Danish/Welsh but it is acceptable for me to wear one as long as it is a solid color, I have no Scottish ties or clan names to my lineage.
And yes I had to take this picture, if you know me you would know why :-P
Everyone had a great time and I cannot wait to go back again next year. But next year we will get here early and enjoy some whiskey from around the globe. I think next time we might bring an RV and camp at the site overnight to avoid the crowds a bit lol
