Ready for the Scottish Wedding!

25 Jun

During our family’s recent R&R in the USA [gotta take a break from work, right? :o], the 5 of us attended one of my husband’s lifelong friend’s wedding in Virginia. Kids were welcome to the celebration [with great baby-sitters on-site/on duty during the ceremony, so grown-ups could really appreciate the traditional wedding events!] and definitely helped us celebrate in style – I guess our kids have become fast learners when it comes to errrr – party! ♥

As one of the groomsmen, husband was looking pretty sharp in the full Scottish kilt gear, I’d say, and well fulfilled his duties…

Modern Scottish wedding traditions are far more relaxed than they were in the olden days, but even today remnants of the ancient traditions still linger – making Scottish weddings the festive and joyous occasions that they are!

    It was so good seeing you all during your visit to Leo and Phyllis. You looked great and the kids grow so much each year. Glad you could spend a little time with us at our home. We miss seeing you. Stay well and give the little ones our love. Ed and Janet

      Janet! I knew you were gonna make an appearance here… [smiles!] was just waiting for it!

      Thanks again for such an warm welcome to our family… needless to say, kids loved the cookies and want to go back as soon as they can! Your care and love to our family does mean a lot to us! we’ll miss you, as well – send our warmest regards to Ed… and many thanks for making it possible to have Nana & Abuelito with us during the road trip from Florida – it wouldn’t have been possible if you hadn’t taken care of Nana’s “little baby” for her! 😮
      More photos from our trip will come out… gradually and surely! 😮
      Greetings from the 5 of us in Bolivia!

    Love the family photos!
    Charles is 1/4 Scottish & 1/4 Irish, but can’t get him to wear a kilt … he won’t wear a kimono either

      He did, actually… and learned the hard way he should have ordered one size larger… because of the waist measure… ohhh, the beer belly! 😮
