The Quadricentennial Celebration

We’ve returned from Virginia, where we celebrated the four-hundredth anniversary of the English landing at Jamestown. Thanks to Aunt Elaine and my mother, we all were able to show up in costume! Sam and I, as well as Josh and Justice Phillips, had the privilege of taking part in the re-enactment of the first landing. Pictures of this and others are below. There are more pictures forthcoming.
