We left Sunday after church (Randy was on-call on Saturday so we couldn't leave any earlier), arrived in Corpus around 4PM, checked into our hotel, unloaded the car/changed diapers, and then headed down to the street so the kids could take in the water/sand/gift shoppe where the entrance was through an open shark's mouth/entrance to the USS Lexington. The kids were SO excited about being in the hotel room...somewhere different, I guess. They were excited about the small balcony, small fridge which contained their special juice, and closet safe (the buttons beeped when pressed, which they LOVED, of course).
At the entrance of the USS Lexington:
It's not a very good picture of Josiah on the anchor, but we just thought it was hilarious that it came from the Norfolk, VA Navy Yard (something also from VA having been transplanted to TX).
And the telescopes.
Josiah trapped in the Brig.
It would be nice to have once of these at home sometimes.
Laney and Randy's turn.
No significance of the picture other than the name listed in slot #41....
my not-so-common maiden name--Good.
On the flight deck
Me with my babies (All 3 of them)
(Laney fell asleep soon after making it onto the flight deck)
Josiah taking a seat on the Bridge
(where the Captain would have been seated).
About an hour (and a face full of salty water) was all it took before Laney decided she'd had enough...then it was time to watch the birds before heading inside to take a shower followed by bedtime.
