Welcome to 1861

This morning as I was sitting here feeding Andrew I was greeted by a booming sound.  Over and over again.

That's what happens when you live in the city where the Civil War started and it's the 150th anniversary of the start.  I think they were going to start firing the cannons at 4:00 AM (the time that the actual first shots were fired) but they delayed until 6:45.  I guess they didn't want to piss off a bunch of people who were trying to sleep.

There have been Civil War re-enactors all around for the last few days.  We live relatively close to Fort Moultrie and aren't far from the harbor where Fort Sumter is, so we are smack dab in the middle of all the festivities.  It's actually kind of cool.  I love living in such a historic city.  I just wish I had a little more energy to go out and see some of the events that are going on.  Instead I will sit here with my sweet baby and listen to the cannons firing.

I love when he starts smiling in his sleep   :)
