Kilts! Kilts! Kilts!

We (gymgeek, axl and Phil) went to the Scottish Highland Games in Enumclaw today. It was great fun. We watched border collies, dancers, listened to pipers and drummers (gotta love the swirly drumsticks), debated eating haggis (no one did), some shopping, more pipers and drummers, saw fuzzy baby cows (Highland Cows are longhairs and the babies are really really cute!), watched strong men in kilts toss cabers end over end, heave sheaves of straw 20 feet in the air, and throw a hammer 70 feet. and got a really good sunburn.

But it was tons of fun.

If you're in the area, it goes all day again tomorrow.
