Texas Independence Day

My family went to Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park last weekend for the Texas Independence Day festival. There were lots of living history re-enactments, plus old-time entertainment. It was beautiful weather, and we had a fun time.

We saw a blacksmith making nails, and it was obvious why people re-used nails back then. Seth and several others got to brand a piece of wood.
This was an old-fashioned band that played great music, mostly dance tunes. They had a little girl (on the far right) who played the spoons. She did a good job, but looked so bored!

This was my favorite thing, I think. These cloggers were very good and looked like they were having so much fun! I really enjoyed watching them.
