Fort Union Rendezvous

We took a walk back in time when we went to kids day at the rendezvous.
we watched a black smith work his magic with a hammer and the hot iron rod.
He was making a hook nail.
Our good friend Elizabeth joined us for this fun adventure.
This nice lady was talking about what kind of toys native kids would have played with.
Lucas loved the tipi.
There was a camp fire that kept us warm on this chilly day as we listened to a man tell us about food.
Dezzi asked him why there was grass on the roof of the building and he said to keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer.
he showed us these bowls filled with peas, roasted corn, and bacon.

They could choose a craft of coloring or making a bead necklace 
This gentleman shot this black powder gun for the kids and told them all about it 

They also got to make corn husk dolls. All in all a great day.
