Scottish Festival

In July, we thought it would be fun to go and take part in Barrie's heritage. We all went down to Payson, Utah where the annual Scottish Festival was held. We sat and watched some of the games/competitions they had. They tossed logs (like telephone poles). There was an event where it was a sack filled with straw. The men competing had a pitch fork; they stabbed the sack and then tryied to launch it over a horizontal pole. It was pretty cool. We then went and sat in the shad for awhile and watched/listened to a few bag pipe groups as they competed. Cate had her usual pose - her hands over her ears. Johnny was intently watching the people. It was lots of fun!

After the festival, we decided to drive by
Barrie's first house he lived in where he was born.
