Today we took the whole clan on the train to Forest Park to attend the St. Louis Scottish Games. This was our second time going, so we knew what to expect, and how much fun we were going to have!
We met some really nice people!
As was the case last year, the children’s area was a huge hit with our bairns!
We made it by the British car show this time…I loved the WWII vehicle!
We saw some of the athletics, but not much.
And just a bit of the highland dancing.
We also saw some other demonstrations.
The children all loved the dog parade!
Not to mention the parade of tartans…we even witnessed a proposal, which was unbelievably sweet!
The children also loved visiting the tent of each clan and getting their “passports” stamped, while learning a bit about the clan.
And I, of course, loved the pipers!
I also loved all the Scottish pride everywhere!
It was a great cultural event, and I think the Scottish games are now part of our family’s permanent calendar. The children are already talking about going back next year!
