Burns Night #1

Thursday night Brendan and I went to the college's Burns night celebration. (Click here for a wikipedia explanation of the event.) It's a Scottish tradition and it celebrates the life and works of the poet Robert Burns. It was a very formal event - kilts or dinner jackets for the men and gowns for the women. We listened to poetry, ate haggis - which is delicious, by the way - and had a great time. It was very nice to get out and do something adult for a change! Our neighbors were very kind to come over and sit in our living room while the kids slept. They thought our American snacks were just great!
Here's Brendan with Nassar and Paul - despite Nassar's outfit, he is NOT Scottish :)
