I feel Wicked…

We went to see Wicked last night and it was phenomenal!!!

This is my third time seeing this wonderful Musical. Our seats were so close to the stage.  The best seat I’ve ever had for anything, lol!

I really have to thank my wife for having a Birthday and wanting tickets to see this show!  Thank you love!

Merry Christmas…in July

We decided to celebrate Christmas in July this year.

We went to Byers Choice and the National Christmas Center.

Byers Choice had lots of places to take photos beyond the exhibits.  This was a dress up area with costumes and a Christmas background to take pictures in your dress up 🙂

It was so hot that Byers Choice had the local fire department come out with the hose to cool the kiddies down.

It was such a fun time.  I got to see so many of my favorite beings (elves) and relive a little bit of my childhood 🙂

 

Happy 241st Birthday America!

On July 2, we visited the Keith House and Graeme Park.

Since the Declaration of Independence was actually made on July 2, 1776 it seemed like a good thing to do visiting a part of Colonial History 🙂

 

 

It was hot and humid but was worth the visit.  The Keith House housed both American and British troops during the War of Independence.  A lot of History passed the grounds of Graeme Park.

On July 4th I hung out with the Puppy and got our Patriotic look on!

Fireworks, bbq, family and friends…it was a great long weekend!

1776 Lives!!

Sunday saw bright sunny skies and a balmy 60 degrees.  It was the perfect kind of day to take in the yearly Revolutionary War Battle Re-Enactment.

What I love about the Re-Enactments is the fact they stay in character and live that way all weekend.  It so much fun to speak with General Washington as he surveys his troops.

It doesn’t hurt the mood when it’s autumn with the vibrant colors accenting the encampment.

They held weapon demonstrations before the skirmish.

It turns out Ben Franklin is quite the shooter.  The lady in non-period garb is the safety inspector.

In the center, guiding the American Militia is General George Washington.

The British won the skirmish but not the war and the Americans lived to re-enact another battle!

If you get a chance visit Hope Lodge.  It’s an historic treat!

The Road Most Traveled Is Also Beautiful!

Autumn seems to be zinging by and I had a fear I’d miss it.  Today I went out at lunchtime to catch some of the color.

So many colors.  It’s amazing to watch.  I could sit on the bench for hours!

The whole season races by and I’m always trying to catch a glimpse whenever I can.  It is hard to believe that this weekend is Halloween.

Time really needs to slow down.  In the mean time I’m going to keep enjoying the show nature has laid out for us!

 

The People of Lahaska

I like to take lots of pictures and one of my favorite subjects to photograph are people of the general public.  While at Peddler’s Village this weekend I did just that with some interesting captures.

Enjoying the beautiful wonders around us all.  It was perfection!  If this is how summer ends I can’t wait to see how autumn begins 🙂
