Real Men Wear Kilts

Saturday was a big day, first of all my little brother FINALLY turned 21.  Happy Birthday Everett!

Second, it was the Celtic Classic in Bethlehem, PA. Do you see the shirt he is wearing? My mom had it made for his birthday, but not only that, she also collaborated with all of the girls to surprise our guys with a little something special.
(Tim, Emerson, Brandon, Tony, Everett, Jack, Matt, Brett)
Kilts!  Matt thought that I was ordering myself a new lens but instead I put the money towards a surprise for him.  We are a single income family, and although we are well provided for, it's not often that I get to give him an unexpected big gift.  It was really great to see how surprised he was!

Plus I got to catcall at him all day and ask him to show me a little leg.  He wasn't a HUGE fan of that...but I thought I was usual.

 Not only did Matt wear a kilt... did Jack! Get a load of those squishy knees! Oh heavens!  We had a great time taking in the sights, it was incredibly crowded, and I will never cease to be amazed at how rude people are in a crowd.  People thought nothing of cutting off the stroller as we were walking, but even that couldn't temper the day.
Jack enjoyed his first parade as well, he liked the bagpipes, but his favorite?
The trombone.  We also got to see one of our favorite Celtic bands, Barleyjuice.
We couldn't figure out why my mom was SO insistent that we sit in the front, until midway through the show when Kyf Brewer(the dude in the vest up there) had Everett stand up and wished him a happy 21st! Pretty cool!

We had a great time celebrating Ev's birthday, but I was left with one, nagging question...
Why, in the 6 years that I twirled baton, didn't I ever get to wear these fabulous boots?


  1. Never too late to get you a pair of those fabulous boots! Love Jack's squishy knees!

  2. My goodness... I have no words for the adorableness of Jack in that outfit! SOOOO cute!

  3. Oh my word, Jack's kilt!! I love the guys in theirs, but Jack just overshadowed them!! What a great day together, give Ev a birthday hug from me! xoxox, Oukie

  4. We went to Celtic festival once, and Kyle REALLY wanted to buy a kilt. I was all for it except for the price tag -$100. More than any of my skirts! Your men look very handsome in their Scottish attire however. Looks like a great time!

  5. How cute! Looks like a fun weekend!

  6. Do you people have a facebook fan page? I looked for one on twitter but could not discover one, I would really like to become a fan!
