Feast Pictures

We had a nice time at the Feast. Unfortunately, camera battery was NOT charged like I thought it was, so I only have a couple pictures. It was bitterly cold on Saturday night, but we survived. I left the little girls with my mom because it was just too cold for them.

Here are our tents set up. The two on the sides are called wedge tents, the one in the middle is a small marquee. This are historically accurate 18th century tents.

Here's my hubby all dolled up. Notice the red coat? Yes, we re-enact on the side of the British :) We're the Royal Highland Emigrants, who were made up of Brits, Scots, Irish, etc, but did wear the kilts (they also did wear trousers, though our men usually don't!) Interesting note, there was one military issue tartan (kilt pattern) that all enlisted wore. They weren't allowed to wear their family tartan to avoid fighting. The kilt is called a great kilt, it's a very long length of fabric that's pleated and wrapped around and comes up the back where it's pinned onto the shoulder.
One of my little girls with a weird look on her face!

My littlest one! She was a Feast favorite, everyone that walked by with a camera just had to get her picture :)

How fun! I want to see what you were wearing. ;)

I don't know how your husband did the kilt -- brrr...it was cold!

Glad you had such a good time!

I know! I realized after my battery was totally dead that I didn't get a picture of me or Bailey!
