A Graduation Party

Sunday we went to our friends' graduation party. They decorated beautifully and everyone had a blast! The afternoon consisted of a yummy dinner served picnic-style, followed by the giving of the diplomas. Then for a fun side kick they played a game that kept everyone laughing! :)

"Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is that man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
Psalm 127: 3-5

Jamestown Celebration Days 5&6

The closing celebration took place for two days (Friday and Saturday) at Fort Pocahontas.

Charlie Zahm delighted us all day on Friday with songs of heritage, victory and hope. Many times the audience sang along or clapped. This little boy who was sitting in front of us clapped and bounced to every song Mr. Zahm sang- too cute!!

Thousands of people gathered came from all over the United States to show gratefulness and celebrate our nation's 400th birthday.
In the morning about 1,000 costumed celebrants marched in a parade on the grounds of Fort Pocahontas.

Boys carried the flags of our states
Sitting in a 3,500 man tent to hear speeches, poetry, songs, reenactments and plays
The real thing and an actor- Mr. Harrison Tyler is the grandson of the tenth president of the US. He owns Fort Pocahontas where the Friday and Saturday events took place. The younger man next to him is a reenacter of "John Tyler", the president, who spoke to us in first person. Mr. Harrison Tyler had us laughing when he kept calling the reenacter (who I don't remember the true name of), "Grandfather"!! :)

Yum, yum eating funnel cakes! :)

Saturday ended with the Academy of the Arts preforming a beautiful play of the Gospel conversation and then the marriage of Pocahontas. As if that wasn't fantastic enough we watched the some of the greatest fireworks we've ever seen before leaving the grounds of the the Fort!
