Monday, Not at Work

Today we went to visit the USS Midway in San Diego. One of the coolest things about this? We got to park on a pier!


Then we went in. Olaf got to see a Corsair for the first time in his life. To say he was excited is an understatement.


We all went on a tour of the "island." That's the control tower for the aircraft carrier. You're pretty far up in the sky at this point!


Then I dragged everyone to the first mission in California, the San Diego Mission. It was beautiful! It was everything I had hoped it to be. While most of it is restored the Bell Tower is original.


It was full of beautiful gardens. And an ancient monster-sized aloe vera plant.


And then when we got home we found the Lovies put to bed.


Do you think I can get the maids to follow me home?

Clearly, Midway is on my list the next time we go visit Krissie and David - like in April. What a neat experience. I was on an aircraft carrier once when we lived in Guam. It was a great experience and I was in 5th grade.

What a great time!!! Your pic of the mission is beautiful. Froggie and company in bed is the best. I bet the maid loved doing that. You made the maid smile!
