Vacation Day 5

On Saturday, we went to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola.  We’ve done this almost every year we’ve gone to the beach.  Usually we go see the Blue Angels practice, but they weren’t practicing this week.  However, there was a hands-on activity for the kids so we decided to go.  As an added bonus, they were having a change of command ceremony in the building so we got to witness some of that.  Also since last year, they’ve added a playground.  Our favorite part:  it’s free! Hands-On History:  Kids of all ages were invited to put their hands on history - literally! - by leaving a painted handprint on a T-38 Talon airplane. Micah had it made!

Last day at the beach…notice Daddy and Luke aren’t there…it’s Saturday and they’re watching football! So what did everybody else do that night while Luke & Daddy were watching football?  Some of them snuggled up and watched Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  They watched Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade on previous nights.  So now Cameron is Indiana Jones…he’s walking around with a cowboy hat and a whip long piece of rope. He even slept with his "whip"!
