Tis the Season!!

For..... 1940s living history events!!

While every month for us 'tis the season' for 1940s living history... March really is the big bang start of the season! We went to start the vehicles and get them dusted off and warmed up and ready! Mid-Atlantic Air Museum's big WWII weekend is right around the corner!! I cannot WAIT!
With all the chemo and treatment I've been going through for the past 2 years I really am ready to get back into my WWII nurse uniform and hit the events hard. I miss everyone and have missed the events and my friends so much! I don't know if I'll be going as my nurse impression or if I will do a homefront impression this year. It depends on weather and how comfortable I can be.

I just got Ellie (she's 11) the cutest vintage dress for the event and she already has all the toys in the world so she's set with all of that. She's thinking of being a war orphan and just hanging around our field hospital display. She's such a cool kid and loves cosplay and is tired of being "dolled up and cute" for the WWII Reenactments. She wants to be in the thick of things and get dirty and actually help out this year. She's a big girl now so I'm game!! She even has her child sized gas mask ready. This kid is a natural! We'll see how many times her mind changes between now and the first week of June!!

Dust off your gear, it's event season!!
