Today was another work day for me since I planned to take off Thursday through Monday in order to take Marvin and the kids to Long Island, NY to visit my parents as well as have a full day in New York City.
My mother-in-law was nice enough to take the boys to the National Marine Corps Museum. http://www.usmcmuseum.com/index.asp
They have interesting displays and a great tribute to the heritage and history of the Marine Corps. Bryce’s great grandfather (his Mom’s Mom’s father) was a Marine and fought in the battle of Saipan that is pictured to the right. The picture to the left is an aerial view of the museum grounds.
Marvin took a lot of pictures while he was here, someday I’d love to see them!
My mother-in-law is a history buff and loves touring all of these types of museums. She even dressed in red, white and blue to tour the museum! The kids told me it was such a long walk outside of the museum to this famous horse. They were hot by the time they got to it and Marvin didn’t want his picture taken.
My parents will celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary this coming September and I made them these t-shirts to wear. They go to Disney every year and they are so cute holding hands walking around the park :-)
