Civil War Re-Enactment Part 1

A few weeks ago the Civil War Re-Enactment came to Airway Heights, which is a small town outside of Spokane, and we all decided to go. I have wanted to go to one since seeing "Sweet Home Alabama" and my dream finally came true! I was so excited as we were driving up because there were signs telling you about the history, but Andy definitely sped right past them and we only got to read one word at a time. Haha. Oh well.
I would definitely recommend going to one if you can, but maybe not bringing young children. The guns and bombs were awesome for us adults, but the kids were pretty scared and cried most of the time. Arden loved it, which was not what we expected. Pip didn't much care, but I was holding her with my hand over her ear so it wouldn't be too loud. Charlie did ok up until the fight was right in front of us. Maggie didn't enjoy it from the get go. And Line handled it ok for the first bit but them went back with her dad and Maggie to enjoy the show from afar (which ended up coming their way in the end). We actually ended up going back again, but that's for another time.
Waiting for the show to start
The horses were a big hit with the kids
Unfortunately, our camera ran out of memory right as soon as the fight started so this was all we got :/
