do not mean to seem the doom-sayer, but you may find yourself with a
very grouchy infant on your hands.  Pennsic is big, loud, hot (or
alternately wet)and you are generally at the mercy of the elements. 
While we as adults accept this as being simply part and parcel of the
whole Pennsic gig, an infant isn't going to understand why bugs are
eating at him the whole time, why he can't seem to be cool, why he is
soaking wet from a leaky tent and why those barbarians over there won't
shut up so he can sleep.  In the end, I think that the poor child will
end up having a simply miserable time.  And that translates into you
and your husband having a simply miserable time.

I believe that you should consider instituting the time honored
tradition of the summer vacation at grandma's for the baby, while you
and your husband pamper yourselves with a little time away and without

Hoping you have a great war, no matter what you decide to do,

April, called the evil (but we all know the truth)
