Let's catch up: Feast edition

So, every year, we go to the Feast of the Hunters' Moon in West Lafayette, IN. This is pretty much our favorite event of the year. We don't dress up or anything (well, Samuel has a shirt and hat, but that's it... so far) but we love love love all the historical garb and food and fife and drum corps and food and muskets and cannons and did I mention the food? Here are a few pics from this year:

On the way to Feast!
got up at o'early that morning, but we're still excited and ready to go!

breakfast bridies
despite the look on Samuel's face (didn't want to be photo'd that early, apparently), this is his fav thing about Feast: bridies. (Scottish meat pies)

snug as a bug
baby carrier + fleece baby-wearing coat = toasty baby (and mama!)

I think we probably have more pictures of this guy than he does - snap him every year during the flintlock competition
We end up with pictures of this guy every year. Guy, if you happen upon this post, I promise we're not, like, stalking you or anything. You just look really cool with your uniform and musket. Let me know if you need any pics for your Christmas card this year.
