Sept 2015                                           Cosby Victory Show

During the Cosby Victory Show we saw people re-enacting an attack dressed up as Germans, English, Russians and the Americans. We saw tanks and guns and got to have our picture taken holding a gun. We also had a photoshoot in front of one of the tanks too.

We all loved the day. Thank you for taking us.
