Our family had a BLAST at this place!!

What better way to spend 4th of July weekend !

We celebrated Independence Day at a wonderful historical place in honor of our freedom.

This place was so neat and very educational not only for the kids but for Jerry and I as well.
Look at all those pretty flags!!

What is so neat was that we were not planning on going here, just passing through and decided to stop and tour it. Sometimes its just plain fun to do something out of the ordinary.

I so love the fact that Jerry takes time with our children. He was showing the kids the BIG ship.

My beautiful family! We are so blessed to have each other!

This picture is very special to the kids. This man was on the ship and was explaining to the kids the significance of it. The kids are holding pictures of him when was on the ship.

This picture is of Jerry and the kids trying to pick this man out in the picture of all the men in the ship.

I LOVE this!! Jerry thinks he is fighting on the ship!

Caiden taking control

And YES, I had to try it out too!!

These are pictures of us touring the ship.

The history was overwheming, and very emotional for us.

Bailee was sitting in the Barber shop chair that they used on the ship. The kids were so amazed at all the different compartments of the ship. For they lived on here for quite a while. This was thier home.

What is a ship without a pirate flag!!

Jerry thinking he was fighting!

This was the best part about the tour. The AWESOME wall of those who fought for our country.

I think this picture says it all.. nothing is free

We had such a great time and we are so thankful for those who fought for our country. We are truly blessed as a nation. God did BLESS THE USA!!
