Kirkin' O' th' Tartan

This past Sunday we went to the Kirkin' O' th' Tartan. Every year on Reformation Sunday {usually the last Sunday in October} we attend this special service at the First Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake. Kirkin' O' th' Tartan means the blessing of the tartans {or families}. Every year the minister gives each clan a special blessing. My husbands family has gone for as long as he can remember to celebrate their Scottish roots.

It really is an amazing service. Complete with a full procession from the Salt Lake Scots bagpipe band and a social hour {with complementary shortbread}. We look forward to this service every year. We are all obsessed with the bagpipes {especially the kiddos} and the blessings are always beautiful. If you are local you should definitely check it out.

They gave every kid a goodie bag before the service. Complete with snacks, crayons, paper, stickers and a DIY bookmark kit. Genius. 

Evie and Chloe decked out in plaid, sharing snacks. 

Staying quite with their goodie bags.
