Civil War Days

A few weeks ago after one of Lexy's basketball games, we went to the Civil War Days in Hurricane, WV.  It really was a good time.  We got there just in time to see the last battle.  Some cannons, some guys running around in the woods, Isaac was way into it.

Here are a few of the cannons off in a distance, one had just fired.  You can see all the camp tents in the back ground.
 And a fist full of guys on the edge of the woods.
 Lexy tried on an old school bonnet.
 Isaac got to try a real top hat.
 We got our turn on the free wagon ride.  We all enjoyed that.
 Lexy had her picture 'made' with President Lincoln.
 Of course she tried on a period dress, wish I could have bought it for her.
 Isaac used his allowance to by a wooden sword and a Union hat.
It was a good time, now we need to get our butts in gear and see more of the real sites in the area.
