Yesterday, marked the beginning of our seventh month on the road and it was one of the best days of Kevin's life because we spent the whole day at the world famous Braemar Gathering, one of the oldest of the Highland Games, sitting opposite Her Royal Highness, the Queen watching events such as Highland dancing, piping, putting the stone, throwing the hammer, my favorite the tug of war and Kevin's favorite tossing the caber.
Kevin could hardly sleep the night before due to his excitement and he woke up at 5am and patiently waited until the alarm went off at 6am before he sprung out of bed and began to encourage Phil, Christine and me to hurry up! We were in our kilts and ready and on our way by 7:15am and arrived in Braemar at 8:30am. We were among the first people at the gate, assuring us the possibility of getting great seats on the field.
