We just spent the weekend camping with our church and it was great. We happened to be camping 10 minutes away from a Civil War Reenactment and I've always wanted to go! Jason watched the wee ones while I took the big girls to see a battle. It was LOUD! It was very impressive! Our favorite part was walking through the rows of tents set up with period furniture and costumes. Everyone was so friendly and happy to tell you all they know about history. I felt like I had walked out of a time machine and steppped right into the 1800's...highly recommended! Unfortunately this was the last one of the year, but you can plan ahead for next year by going to http://www.nwcwc.org/ for their schedule.
