Thanks Giving

 
 
 
 

I AM HERE!

 

I have really neglected my blog.  I am sorry.  Life just has gotten in the way.  I seem to not be a very good multitasker.  I would like to just say I hope everybody has a great Thanksgiving, weather you celebrate it or not.  I am so Blessed in this world.  I am Thankful for all of it.  I could not do it without God.  I have  a great family and many great friends.  Thank you to my dedicated blogger friends.  Sorry again that I have not posted in a while.

Nelson's Manor, Grimsby, Ontario and a great re-enacting day!

Nelson's Manor in Grimsby, Ontario

It was such a pleasure to be a part celebrating history.  My family and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of such a nice group of people. Whom which allowed everyday people to come and visit a few buildings that are rarely allowed to be seen and were opened up for our enjoyment.  Here are some pictures I took along the way...
Ready men?
