With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

If it’s not Scottish it’s Crap!

We went to Scotland!
Wow, wouldn’t that be an adventure. Can you even imagine taking a family full of food allergies to another country?!  That’s a feat I’m not sure I could conquer.
Okay so we didn’t go to Scotland but we went to a Scottish festival.  I know that travel will more than likely be limited to the good old USA for my kids. So taking advantage of heritage festivals might be as close as they get to go somewhere foreign.
It was a fun morning. Within minutes of getting out of the truck parked in a field of grass all three kids and Nathan were sneezing. Nathan and I just laughed about it.

Of course the Clydesdale horse grabbed their attention first thing. I love these giant horses. This particular one is named Ferris. He loved the grass, the boys loved watching him eat it.

This furry little guy is a Highland cow. The picture doesn’t do him justice. I could have taken him right home with me. Mine would be groomed daily with bows and braids.

Who wins the best Scotsman award?

There was a sheepdog demonstration. That is one smart puppy!

They were playing different athletic games. I don’t know what any of them were.

Tinleigh enjoyed watching the men in kilts.

We then went and watched a little show about different swords and a sword fight that needed lots of practice. During the show this little girl sat down beside Charlie and I about wet my pants. What a shot for my blog! Always be on your toes, you never know when you could be in danger! If you don’t know the packaging, she’s eating peanut butter m&m’s.  How crazy though that she sat down beside Charlie with peanut butter and he had on his food allergy t-shirt. I really wish I could have stood in front of them and took the picture. It would have been comical, to an allergy mom.

After the sword demonstration they allowed the kids to check out the swords. I don’t think they realized my kids were in the audience when they gave permission.

How does Charlie know to get in this stance? Is this another one of those things boys are born knowing? I say pose and he looks like he’s going to stab and kill me.

image

If you look behind Gage in this picture you’ll see Charlie talking. He’s telling the presenters that he hopes they have a nice flight back to Scotland. He’s so darn cute.

image

We then find ourselves at a grassy area where there are people fake fighting. All we could think of was the movie Role Models.
We look over to see what the boys think of the “fighting” going on.

Seeing they had lost interest and knowing them covering themselves with grass would only end in some sort of allergy reaction, we knew it was time to go.
When riding home we asked what their favorite part of the day was, they both agreed it was the horse. We probably should have just went to a farm.

As for the title of this post, who remembers the old Saturday Night Live skit?
