 Here we have my Beloved with my sister, Tina.
My brother Paul and me!

I introduce for the first time, Mr. and Mrs....

The receiving line.
From left to right we have..Jason and his wife Della (brides brother)
My Beloved with my sister Tina and our son Thomas.
My brother Paul and I.
My brother Mike with his new wife Candice.

My Beloved with our youngest Grace.

My bouquet added to my center piece at home!

 I decided to add this at the last minute which is why it is out of order, sorry.

After the bride walked down my daughter Cassie decided to come down so she could watch the ceremony. The funny thing was everyone paused and turned to watch her!
So, you have my Cassie.
Oh, and our oldest Joe is in this shot between the groom and the best man.

All in all it was a beautiful day and everything went great!
Congratulations you guys!

Father's Day!

I wanted to tell my men happy father's day!

Unfortunately, my father lives too far away. So I have no recent pictures of him. My beloved is another story. Though his most recent picture is from my brother's wedding on Saturday. (That's another post)

So for now I will just leave you with this link.
A Father's Love letter to you.

Hope ou all enjoyed your Father's Day as well!

Our first event!

Yeah, we survived our first event of the season! The weather kept changing and we had a scare but all was well.

I think the kids most enjoyed making homemade butter. Our friend Mercedes was so patient with all the kids. I will say though that the high temperatures caused the butter to turn out a little bit more like a whipped butter. I myself do not care for butter but everyone else said it was great. But then don't we know that the homemade stuff is always better?

I really enjoyed getting to connect with other re-enactor friends that I missed all winter. We spent more time away from camp this year and the kids got to ride on all the rides. Then came Monday. Memorial day is so very special to us. Our unit currently has 2 active duty Marines and we have several retired military. My own brother is a veteran. I couldn't help but cry a little as all of the military members past and present were called onto the field. We all clapped for quite a while tears ran down our cheeks. How can I thank these men and women for all that they have done? I guess that is really what I think about for Memorial Day.. What do you think about for Memorial Day?

I would also like to THANK our Veterans and remind everyone to pray for our troops!
