Bannockburn Dinner

 Saturday 26th June

The Ives First Annual Bannock Burn Dinner

My partner's Family (well the boys usually go to Bannock Burn Dinner hosted by The Society of St Andrews), this year we saved the money and had a night on my parents in law deck.

 The scarves made by Christina: Red for the boys and Blue for the girls.

The banners placed all around the deck

The beautifully table settings and the awesome view from the deck.

  1. Now that looks like a good time. My great grandparents came to the USA from Scotland in 1902 and kept close to their roots their entire lives.


Thank you for your gracious comments!
