Fort Scott Re-enactment!

Yesterday, a bunch of the family headed up to Fort Scott for a Civil War style baseball game and then a calico dance. Unfortunately I entirely forgot to take any photos of the game or the dance! I'm hoping that the someone at the Fort will burn us a disc of the photos they t00k. So all is not lost.
And I did get some photos of us just hanging about before-hand.

Daddy, looking quite nice in his historical attire.

And me in the my very own dress that I made!

Abi was the one taking these photos of us (she is not used to my camera). And well she kept taking what were to her hilarious photos, we tried to not laugh with her but as you see here we failed.

And here we are again, trying to look like we are having a nice conversation. Though I don't know why Susan is giving me that funny look.

Susan had dressed in an outfit of what would be a lower class woman, maybe a laundress. And here she is I suppose waiting for her husband to come home after a long days work, as you can tell by the smuts on her apron.

And Susan again. That dress looked quite nice on her.

And Blu, also looking quite fine.

Here you can see his whole outfit.

And the three younger girls. They spent their day (when they were not playing ball or dancing) doing some sketching, chatting with the other girls, eating ice cream, wandering around and checking to see if the soldier at the bake house was done with the bread yet.
