The Great Battleship Texas

Looking at the San Jacinto Monument

So one of the scout leaders, John Goetschious, thought it would be fun to sleep on the battleship with all the scouts- HE WAS RIGHT- There were 28 scrub scouts and 18 adults who got to tour the ship and sleepover, for only $25.00 you coul sleep in these luxurious quarters...

The mattressed hung 4 deep, Robert was able to sleep with all the boys, sadly the ship is still segregated, and men and women could not sleep together, so I was FORCED to sleep on a single cot in a room with 5 other mommies. I didn't hear a thing.... It was pretty warm during the tour but it was very informative. It really made me pause and think about the brave men who lived and fought on this ship. I am greatful for the freedoms I'm allowed and the life that I take for granted. My heart goes out to these brave men and women, who fought and continue to fight for our freedom! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Here are some more fun pictures that Robert took of the boys and their friends.

Woo-Hoo!! I am SO excited to have a new blogging buddy! Hooray! :) I had pretty much given up on all of my boring friends, but not surprisingly, I see you are one of the few & the proud to embrace new things, and not just march right up to the Old Folks' Home and turn yourself in already! :) I'm adding you to my short list of fellow bloggers!
I love this post - what a fun thing to do! I haven't seen pictures of your kids in forever - the boys are adorable! Post some pics of the girls too!
I'm SO addicted to blogging - I hope you have fun with it too! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your cute kiddos and hearing what you guys are up to! :)

Hey!! It looks like you're a fellow scout mom! I am Collins Den leader but we don't do anything outside of our den meetings! Looks like you're having fun. When I got up this morning I was thinking how we need to go to the Battleship! Weird. I can't believe how big your kids are!

That is so fun. I think for one of our activities we are going to go on a nature hike through the lava rocks in between here and Idaho Falls. I hear that you can see snakes. You know how much I love reptiles in the wild. It should be a blast.
