Heritage Days

We went to Lewis and Clark Heritage Days in St. Charles, MO, today. I certainly enjoyed the weaving! The tent with the loom was the first thing I saw when I came into the area. Chris said, "Uh, oh." :)

The children's area had several activities, including a "military" tent where they showed the kids how to throw hatchets and then taught them how to start a fire with flint and steel.

There were bag pipers and horses, and people in a wide array of garb, from kilts to Revolutionary War era costume.

Most of the costumes looked entirely too warm on our 90 degree F and high humidity day. We did our best to stay in the shade.
