Pie and Pipes

On December, 10, 2011, we had the chance to attend Pie and Pipes at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in WaKeeney.  It is not every day that you get the chance to hear bagpipes in concert.  They played some traditional Scottish bagpipe songs, as well as some Christmas carols.  And, we were blessed to get to learn about how bagpipes work and what might happen during your training. 

The pipes were a little louder than we expected, since we've only ever heard them out in the open air.  The acoustics are much different inside a church.  The kiddos favorite part of the afternoon was the pie served in the church basement after the concert.  It was great pie!!  They even brought Angel a piece upstairs since the basement is not wheelchair accessible.  Eric enjoys bagpipes so much he would like to learn to play them.  All in all, we are so blessed to have various types of cultural experiences available in Kansas.

Listen to one of the songs.  :)
