Log Village // Part 1

The eye candy at the Midwest Old Thresher's Reunion ranks right up there with state fairs in my humble opinion.  From the glass jars of candy in the general store to the bright red medicine man show wagon, it's a party for your eyes and cameras.  So on account that I have so many photos to share, I've decided to break it into two parts.  

Here are snippets from the three days we volunteered in the village.
^^ Emmett was lucky enough to skinny dip in a washtub one afternoon when the thermometer topped out at 106 degrees.  Oh how I wished I was six months old! ^^
^^ Can you believe that the cooks made meals everyday for around 50 volunteers over this open fire, served in that tent?!  They are definitely the favorite workers in the village! ^^
^^ My beautiful mama ^^
^^ Probably one of my favorites from the whole weekend ^^
^^ I felt like a school girl that was crushing on the cutest guy in the village as I watched Adam from a distance.  What is it about a swinging ax and suspenders on a hard working guy that affects me so much!?  Swoon, I tell ya.  Swoon.  ^^
^^ The best part of the whole village is the music on the porch at night.  After the dishes are put away.  The lanterns are lit.  The dulcimers and harmonicas come out.  It's pure peace in the quiet night air. ^^
