Tonight we are heading to NY to spend time with my mother-in-law, her mom and her brother’s family. We are going to the Capital District Scottish games. This will mark my 10th year going to the Scottish Games with my husband’s family. The games are okay. We get there in plenty of time for the parade of tartans and then the massed bands. We also walk around and look in the shop tents. We like to watch the games.
Some very neat things have happened in conjunction with the Scottish Games. In 2000, I went to my first games 3 months after we started dating. I got to meet my husband’s family for the first time. A couple years ago we got to meet Steve Caporizzo from WTEN. He took a picture with Gramma and then (after I emailed him) he sent her a really nice note. But last year was the best. We stayed in a hotel in the Berkshires on Sunday instead of going home. 40 weeks later we were 3 instead of 2.
