Part 1 - Alafia River Rendezvous 2014

The last few weeks I have been home dealing with sick little boys... so its been a while since I posted... 

Some of you may know about the Alafia River Rendezvous that takes place in Homeland, FL each year in January... well, we decided to take the kids as a family this year... and let me tell you, I had an amazing time :)

I'm not sure how Aaron felt about the whole thing, but I know the boys enjoyed their time... they even met a little girl, lol.

Since as always, I took a ton of pictures... here is the beginning of them...

Live Music when you first walk in... the boys were jamming out in their strollers :)

Once you get in the giant fence... there is so much to look at and little "roads" everywhere, so its just a matter of picking which direction you want to go... and start walking, lol.

We decided to head to the left and start in the encampment... this is where all the settlers are living for two weeks... they stay in little white tents or tipi's...

Loved this set up... and of course the guard turtle, lol.

The weather was perfect when we got there... then the clouds started rolling in... just a few sprinkles though... then it got chilly... by the end of the day, it was hot though... but, that's just crazy Florida weather :)

Doesn't this just make you smile... its so peaceful

Notice the Boy Scouts??? The Scouts come out and can camp just outside the fence, then they get free admission for volunteering their time :)

I loved all the painted tipi's

We had a great time... and this is just the beginning... more to come :)
