A Day With The Grandkids

Just a short post to say that Erin and I went shopping today and had a great time. We went to the mall in Streetsboro which is about an hour away. Great mall. She got a control for her Wii, some candles, and a Webkids frog. I got Yankee Candles--I LOVE Yankee Candles and they were having a sale. We had lunch at Panda Express. For $6 a piece we got HUGE meals. Neither of us could finish. I didn't get to go to her game tonight but her team won 22-5 so they play tomorrow at 4. If they win then they play at 8. All of this is contingent on weather though since severe thunderstorms are expected tomorrow. UGH.

Sam went with us to the concert tonight at the Scottish Festival. We met Alex Beaton at the Barbecue, then went and chatted with our Clan Montgomery president and his wife for awhile. Then back to help Alex sell CD's. They moved the concert inside due to expected rain and storms--which never occured. We got out of there about 9:30 and opted to come on home (about an hour's trip) rather than go to the Ceilidh (Scottish music and entertainment). I'm not sure how that was different from the Concert!! One interesting thing though, when we got there Alex had just sat down to eat with 4 guys in kilts and white shirts who looked rather important. He, however, got up and came and sat with us to eat. He introduced these guys later to the crowd at the concert. They were all from Crieff in Scotland. Crieff is the sister city of Wellington, Ohio where the games are held. Anyway, one of the four is the father of Ewan McGregor!!! Alex actually left him to eat with us. How cool is that??

Anyway, we have to get up early and head back tomorrow to sell more CD's and brave the expected massive thunderstorms. UGH. NOthing worse than wet wool kilts!

Sounds like you had a fabulous day with Erin! And I'm having a bit of a giggle about Alex coming over to eat with you.

Hope the expected thunderstorms don't materilize...and you have a great day tomorrow. :)

Glad you had a good time. Cool about the Ewan MacGregor connection...

You know, the only scottish accent I can muster is when I say the name "MacGregor"!
