But, we ended up going out in the rain for a bit on Saturday. We showed the boys where Mike and I lived as newlyweds.
We visited a maritime museum in the area. Mike enjoyed showing Seth all the equipment he used during his time in the ancient Navy.
When all six kids lived at home, these items would have been very useful at our home.
We toured a decommissioned battleship. I was amazed at its size even though it is not very large in comparison to other ships.
This particular ship, Battleship Wisconsin, served in WWII thru the Gulf War, is nearly 3 football fields long and one of the last battleships built by the US Navy.
Now, anyone who has followed my blog long enough, knows that my oldest son, Seth, is a bit wild. He occasionally has pulled his brother along on his escapades. This weekend was no exception. Later that evening, in 40 degree temps and drizzling rain, my boys headed down to the beach, in their swimsuits to take a plunge in the ocean. I don't know...but that is something I would never even consider doing. Some people walking along the beach stopped to take videos to post on FB of the crazy young men.
