HAPPY 4TH ...FROM FORT HARROD, KY

A couple of weeks ago DH and I went to Kentucky with the purpose of visiting the Shaker Village Antique Show and sale and also to visit Fort Harrod during the 2d Annual Re-Enactment.... To learn more about Fort Harrod Click here
We had such a great time, and since this week end is The 4th of July and the Fort was founded in 1775 and the men of the Fort fought to help win our freedom I thought these would be great pictures to show how our country was founded...
Today I am joining Claudia's "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Dipity Road.
My friend Beverly of How Sweet The Sound is hosting a PINK SATURDAY
Scenic Sunday is a photo meme of the scenery. It can be landscapes, buildings, flowers, or anything you feel is a scenery photo. This meme will be held every weekend. To join, just post your scenery shots on your blog and link back to Scenic Sunday.
We ran into a family who takes part in alot of Re-enactments, they have 8 children and they are just beautiful children, the mother makes all of the outfits and I just had to take pictures of them...
This is the sign out side the Fort....


The little one in pink was 5 yrs old and she was all over the park, she looked like she had walked out of the cemetery and really belonged there....

The baby is even dressed as part of the re-enactment..she was asleep but had the same blond curly hair as the older children
This is the oldest child, she was 13...







I hope all my friends have a great 4th of July, we are gone to spend the week end with Baby Boy in Madison.

  5. Great pictures.

    Cute kids. LOL...hopefully some of the outfits can be filtered down so she doesn't have to make new ones every year.

    Also hope that Dude didn't have to ride long in that outfit. I know from personal experience, skin and leather on horses can end up to PAIN.
