A couple of weekends ago, the kids and I went to a Civil War reenactment with my dad and nephew. I wasn't really invited, but tagged along, as I was hoping to score a photo of a period person wearing a fanny pack (one of my favorite blogs right now is Fanny Pack Antics).
Despite the cool weather and the mud, we enjoyed watching the mock battle. I had forgotten how loud these recreations are. I loved looking around to see all of the bystanders covering their ears. It was pretty comical.
After the battle, we walked around and toured the war camps. Bobby even shelled out $16 for Root Beer... he never would have done that when I was a kid;)
