Busy weekend & the Highland Gathering

Our weekend was so busy that I have spent the last few days trying to work out which part to blog about.

The main part other than remembering the death and resurrection of Christ and observing this at church was travelling to the Maclean Highland Gathering.

My DH grew up in Maclean and has talked about the Scottishness of the town and the Highland Gathering each Easter we have been married, I think. I had had an aversion to bagpipes and want to spend time with my extended family at Easter.

This year we compromised we went down but only stayed one night so we could have lunch with DH's family on Good Friday and lunch with my family on Easter Sunday. My compromise was the fact we actually went and DH's was that it was only one night.

I am happy to say that I enjoyed the time away. DD#2 D really enjoyed watching the Scottish dancing. She asked me to look up a local school so she can learn. The parade through town was nice and the band competition was impressive. They also have a Highland Games which was quite fun to watch.

My primary school had a highland dancing group when i was there. It was just like the other usual performing arts groups a school has like choir and bands.
