Happy Thanksgiving

Last weekend we went to Sand Ridge Nature Center for the 39th celebration of "Settlers' Day." 
I remember the first Settlers' Days!  Below are a friend, the brother-in-law, hubby and my sister.  The friend an my sister were among the first "settlers" as Girl Scouts.
It's always a wonderful day. The reenactors are always very knowledgeable and interesting--it's like time traveling to "meet" Revolutionary War and Civil War soldiers, Native Americans, voyageurs, and craftspeople. They cook turkeys over the fire each year, too. It always smells great.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday replete with all of the things you are most thankful for.
For me it will be family as we gather at my sisters' home.
Back next week.
