Hello! Good morning and happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to get started with the week!
This past weekend, I had some things on my schedule that were mandatory and some things that were thrown in for fun. I taught a Jazzercise class on both Saturday and Sunday mornings which is something I never do. At our center, we have scheduled class times that we teach during the week and then we just take turns signing up for the weekends. This past Saturday was my first for this month and another instructor had a conflict and needed someone to take her class yesterday morning so I grabbed that one as well. I never teach on Sundays so it was nice to see some fresh faces and some students that I haven’t seen in awhile! Also, I had plans with my mom on both Saturday and Sunday, so driving down to the center both days was no big deal (yes, I do have a husband but, unfortunately, he works almost every weekend and sleeps at weird hours because of his shifts…thank goodness my parents allow me to tag along with them!).
On Saturday, after my class, my mom and I had plans to head to a local festival in a nearby town called Ligonier. Every October, they have Fort Ligonier Days which honors the history of the area and the role it played in the French and Indian War. If you want to read more about the history of the area, check here and if you want to see how I spent my past two Fort Ligonier weekends, you can check here and here!
My mom and I did our usual…eat a pepperoni roll, check out some vendors, grab some coffee, watch the parade (this year, it was two hours and fifteen minutes long!), and check out the Fort Ligonier museum. Saturday was the 255th anniversary of the Battle of Fort Ligonier so there were some pretty special things going on! Here are some pics from the day…
It was definitely another successful trip to Fort Days! Even though I have been to Fort Ligonier many times, I am always so amazed at the amount of history that lies so close to our front door! And, I might have a slightly unhealthy obsession with George Washingon…weird, I know.
Later in the evening, I headed home to spend some time with Lee before he had to head off to work. Sunday morning, I woke up bright and early to get to Jazzercise and then tackled a whole other kind of adventure…but that recap shall come tomorrow!
Have a beautiful day, friends!
With much Love and Laughter,
Something to share: Are you interested in history or live an area rich in history? How have you been spending your Fall weekends so far?
