Utah’s Colonial Heritage Festival at Orem

Laura and I had the opportunity to attend "The Sixth Annual Colonial Heritage Festival" last weekend. It was fun and free. This living museum, called the Village at Aubin’s Grove, features a gathering of Colonial artisans, military exhibits, and period craftsmen and women.The village celebrates the Colonial period from 1607 Jamestown through to the signing of the Constitution in 1787.

You can view Laura's future blog http://lauranielsonbaxter.blogspot.com/ on our adventure there if you want to see pictures she took of it. We have a friend who is one of the organizers of Colonial Days and she has asked me if I would be one of the dressed up historical figures in it next year. What do you think? Should I go for it? I can teach people all about bed bundling!

I think the most memorable moment for me was I noticed at the blacksmith shop the blacksmith had a young son who was drawing pictures of people for 99 cents. I let him draw me as well.

He signed it, and signed my name too. What do you think? Does it look like me?
