talk like a pirate night

Monday was a National "Talk Like A Pirate" day .... did anyone talk like a pirate?  I have to say "aye Matey" and "blow me down!" came out of my mouth a few times, much to my kids embarrassment!  "Shiver me timbers" I also uttered... but I have no clue what it means.

Let's back up a day... Sunday I get an email that I have placed an award in a photography contest.  The award night was on Monday night at an English restaurant -- which was featuring bag pipers, Scottish Dancers and all kinds of fun.  My girls are Highland Dancers ..... so I emailed their teacher to see if she needed them to dance, and she did.

Monday night after volleyball practice and shoving down homemade pizza in our bellies in 5 minutes, we were out the door to this English pub.  The girls did their dances .... and we saw "Nessie". 


Maddie dances the Lilt

Katie is dancing around the swords

Nessie ... the Loch Ness Monster!

Katie dances the Seann Trius

Katie's leap at the end ...

The girls together dance the Highland Fling... I love the second picture of their hair flipping!  Reminds me of that song "I Whip My hair back and forth ....." dumbest song ever.

and the results of the Photography Contest that was held from the Highland Games this year!

My picture of Katie captured second prize... the first prize was the picture to the left of my picture.  It was a great picture! 

Just in case you can't see it.... there it is. :)
My first photography contest win!


  1. That is so awesome. You rock Amy!

  2. I think its great that your girls stuck with highland dancing for so long! Plus good job on the photo contest--pretty sweet! PS-- sorry, I have been blogger MIA for a while. I guess its time to update.
