Highland Games - Year 3

This post is for my Mother-in-Law Ann, better known as Grandma Ann. Some of you may remember that she received a double lung transplant last year. This year, she was looking forward to attending the Highland Games, however she unfortunately caught Ian's and Laurel's nasty cold and had to miss it yet again.




Paul helps the kids pose for a picture.







Hand in hand - too sweet!








Our wee man loves his kilt!











Our bonnie lass loves her "Princess dress," as she calls it.









A kilt isn't going to keep Ian from climbing...








...and playing.












Laurel follows Ian's lead.










Going up, up, up...













...and then down...






and down.












Now, that's what I call an ice cream cone!







Ian had to get one with pink on it. Unfortunately after only a few licks, it toppled over, hit his sleeve and landed on the ground. Oh yes, there were tears.









Sweet Laurel was willing to give up her cone to Ian in exchange for Mommy's strawberry shake.









Ian eats this cone more carefully. You can see the pink residue from the last cone's fall on Ian's sleeve.










The day ended with a fun train ride for the kids. I think each car was made from a keg of beer.

Tina, Thank you so much for the pictures. It was almost but, not quite as good as being there. The kids look awesome in their kilt outfits. Tell Ian I am so sorry about his cone but Grandma has bought strawberry cheesecake ice cream for him and Laurel to enjoy. Love you

Poor Ian!! I think all of us at one time or another have to suffer an ice cream cone tragedy.
