Happy 4th of July!

Something different this year...the kids wanted to check out Old Fort Niagara and see the French & Indian War Encampment. This was Old Fort Niagara's largest French & Indian War Encampment ever, to commemorate the 250th Anniversary of the 1759 Siege of Niagara. It was quite the history lesson, and with over 2500 re-enactors portraying British and French forces and Native American warriors it was definitely a sight to see.

Turns out, my cousin Jerry was there portraying a member of Crogan's British Rangers...and it was a miracle we even ran into him! We just happened to be strolling though the British camp and Tim saw him! Amazing!!!

Here are the kids pictured with Jerry and some more from the day!
