The Oklahoma Scottish Festival

We're rowing Wee Gillis right now, so of course we had to go to the Scottish Festival today!

We saw pipers,

a dog parade,

and sheep herding, a la Babe. (Though this is a dog, not a pig, but it is not a man standing around with a crook, either.)

We also found our way to such Scottish traditions as the inflatables...

...and the expensive pony rides.

In the kids' area, Jack and Alice both tried out the games.

Jack attempted the caber toss--I have some video to upload of this!

Alice wanted to try, too!

Trying out the haggis toss

After they collected their ribbons (you can kind of see Jack's on his shirt), they headed to the arts and crafts area.

Alice kept trying to get a look at her crown.

After a snack (Alice also ate a good portion of Jay's steak and onion sandwich), we headed back to the inflatables for a bit before heading home.

We had a great time! This week we'll finish up Wee Gillis, so be sure to check back for more Scottish fun!
