After you read our story, don’t forget to check out the entire circle, starting with the Tess Runion‘s gorgeous fall weekend!
It’s not unusual to experience canon fire in our home (we live on an artillery post and across the street from a parade field),
but to experience it directly in front of our door for 2 days straight means it’s Frontier Days weekend.
Even though we knew it was going to happen all weekend, we jumped every single time it fired (sometimes, there was even a yelpy scream from one of the kids).
It sounds awful, but the canon fire was fun and it was awesome to
watch all of the neighborhood kids walking around and soaking in all of the history.
Their favorite place was the laundry station – I wish they got this excited about laundry in our home!
H’s least favorite place was the medical tent.
He ran home green saying he needed to rest before continuing and that he couldn’t go back to that station again.
I thought he was overreacting until I saw it. I’m with him!
By the end of the weekend, they had walked the quad several times, watching the demonstrations over and over.
We soon learned exactly what was said just before the blast and prepared accordingly.
The weekend ended with an historic baseball game between the Army and Fort Sill teams.
And that wraps up Frontier Days …. until next year.
