Battle of Narcoosee Mills - Civil War Reenactment

I'm secretly a bit of a history nut. I actually like going to museums and historical places.
No shame in my game! Luckily my husband thinks the same way (my 3 year old doesn't have a choice - i'm hoping she will love too).

I have wanted to check out this re enactment for few years now and this year we were finally able to go!  It did not disappoint. The event was very well organized, there were plenty of seats and room for people to view the battle without over crowding. We went on the second day, which may be why it was a little quieter but we enjoyed it.

There were booths set up with vendors from all over selling period toys and games, clothing, accessories and food. We got a copy of the Constitution and some replica confederate money.
Overall it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

My favorite picture from the day

Have you guys ever been to a civil war reenactment?

Around the world in an afternoon

I live 20 minutes from all the Orlando area attractions - Seaworld, Universal Studios and Disney.
My parents got us an annual pass to Disney and it's such a novelty to be able to go when ever we want. Last weekend we went to Epcot and I really wanted to explore the park, rather than just do the rides and wait in line all day. 

There are two parts to Epcot, first half with the rides such as Test track and Soarin'

Then there is the world showcase. A big loop around the lake featuring some of the worlds countries. We had such an amazing time exploring the different countries. There was lots of cool stuff tucked away in the back that we didn't know was there. 

There is a Coca Cola room where you can sample different coke products from around the world.
There were a group of guys doing the "Beverly" challenge. Beverly is the product from Italy and it is very bitter. The challenge is to see how many cups you can drink. Keep in  mind the size of the cups - they are basically the size of a shot glass. The guy who won managed to drink 6. That's how bitter the drink is! My favorite is the Pineapple flavor one from Greece.

So there you have it, around the world in an afternoon.
