Wordless Wednesday Birthday Celebrations This Past Weekend

G turned seven and did a roller skate party.
B and I spent the day together to honor his turning twelve on May 5th. We did a celebration that included a day of local history.

this is a reinactment of an actual skirmish between a small group of union soldiers and a band of confederate that took place in Prarie Du Rocher, Illinois in 1864  (about twenty five minutes from where I live now)

the confederates attempt to head to the Mississippi River  bluffs to take cover and fight back.

You can google the Creole House for a tid bit of history near my own backyard
