Medieval Weekend

Last weekend Savanna and I went with our Girl Scout Troop to a Medieval reenactment.  The event was Saturday, but since we didn't get a chance to go camping as a Troop this year we added an overnight at a campground into the plan!  It was a fun weekend; the girls learned a lot about Medieval times and we got to hang with some of our Scout buddies.

The event was held at Fort Knox in Prospect Maine.  It was a bit of a drive, but we left early and made good time.  We arrived in plenty of time to experience all the events they had planned, and also explore the fort.

I hope that as Savanna gets older, she continues to be interested in Scouting and all it offers.  Most of her best friends have fallen by the wayside in the past few years, but she still seems to enjoy the group.  I love that we get exposure to things we might not necessarily do otherwise.  I don't think a cross bow, throwing axes or chain mail would be on her radar otherwise!
