I think we should get some sort of award for squeezing maximum fun in a relatively small amount of time!
Harrison and Elsie are stationed at Ft. Mead, Maryland. They have been for a couple of years and we have not made the trip up to visit them – until last week!
It’s a good thing because they are heading out to Hawaii for four years. (yeah- we’ll make sure to get out and visit them there as well!)
We made our way to DC to explore some galleries and museums.
We spent just a fraction of the time Bill would have liked at the Gallery. But kids don’t enjoy looking at artwork that much!
We were blessed enough to somehow not have crowds or lines. So we didn’t get the ‘full’ experience (thank heavens!).
The Smithsonian could have held our attention all day!
We learned so much about birds, bugs, gems, and of course, dinosaurs!
Sometimes I hear a rumor about a food truck in Muncie but haven’t caught it yet. But the food trucks there were amazing. We all found something we loved.
We had to see all the air & space travel ships. Of particular interest, the toilets (didn’t get a pic…)
We took a trip to Sandy Point beach to play!
The above image is the closest picture I got of a family photo of their family – at least they’re all having fun – even if we can’t see the kids’ faces.
Danni loved just swimming and floating around the water, we really need an ocean in Indiana!
Personally I’m more of a beach girl than a water girl, I was very content to sit and read and watch!
I always enjoy this view!
Of course we all came away with a lot of sun! Some suffered worse than others. But now we are all ready for summer.
A day of rest. Our sun weary bodies made it to church, then we hung out and just enjoyed each other’s company.
It kind of looks like I play favorites with my pictures with Georgia, not so, she just likes to hang out with me more than Dano.
We decided to go visit some family!
Bill’s mom, Ruth, grew up on the same property that her brother still lives on in Brandywine MD. The property has since been subdivided and many family members reside on it now. Sonny and Dorris live right next door to the house he and Ruth and their other siblings grew up in.
We get a few weeks of rest before our next adventure out west!
