What a weekend we had!  Sir Knight and I hosted a lovely tea party, complete with a tent, shotguns and wonderful friends.  Although the weather was cool the fellowship was warm and we ate, drank, shot and talked to our hearts content.

We have so many photos, I thought I would share them in two posts – lets get started!
