This little boy was happy to pose for me. What a cutie pie!






These are some flowers there that I would love to plant. I have no idea what these all are. (The last one is a ground cover). If anyone can identify them, please let me know!

Finally! Whew They had a huge display of Civil War era costuming (and some other Victorian/Edwardian costuming as well).











A re-enacting couple admiring the costumes. I loved this woman's dress!!

Thank you for posting the pics, Mimi!! (I call dibs on the Titanic-era dress! *swoon*) And I think we should gather all of our Michigan pals at the covered bridge! (Everyone else is welcome, too, but it might be more of a challenge for you all to get there. )

That looks like SO much fun, Amy!! You and Barbara look beautiful. I love your hats - and the background is stunning!

I'm glad you ladies enjoyed the pics! Thumbsup Lisa, you would look stunning in that Titanic dress. yes It's all yours. Wink

Rhonda, I think we all feel like we were born in the wrong era, until we think about the heat! LOL!! In fact, I'm happy for those re-enactors that it wasn't too terribly hot yesterday or today. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse. And back in the day, those people were used to having to be overdressed in the summer....these re-enactors aren't! When we went a couple of years ago, it was in the 90's and humid. I felt so sorry for them!!

This really would be the perfect spot for the Michigan folk to gather (and whoever else can join in!). I know everyone would love it! Thumbsup

Gin, be sure to post that drawing when you're done with it! I saw him standing there like that and just had to get his picture!


Thanks for the compliments too, ladies Smile I did enjoy wearing the sun hat...wasn't sure if we would need them, but the weather cleared and the sun came out. Just a beautiful day!! Love

Thank you to our veterans! I don't think we have any board members who served in the military, but I know that we have several members who have family who served, or are currently serving. So a special thank you, and special honor to the military loved ones of our prairie pals!

Thanks Lisa! So many people forget what this day is all about....some seem to think it is for picnics, lake trips and partying....I guess that is fine since so many gave their lives for our freedom to do that.....but I thank all, past, present and future....which includes 2 of my 3 boys...... Love

I agree Rhonda, it's sad. Happens here too with Remembrance Day and Anzac Day. No
