National Museum of the Marine Corps

On Friday morning, we sadly said goodbye to Tutu and headed on down the road towards home.  We stopped on the way for one last "always passed it on the road but never stopped to see it" adventure - the National Museum of the Marine Corps!  My dad was (IS) a (retired) marine, so it was so neat to get to see the museum and show the kids some of the history of the USMC!

 We could have spent a whole day there!  Sadly we only had a couple of hours, but the kids loved it.  They had TONS of neat hands on activities for them and they loved it!
 Caleb's face cracks me up in this one!
 Loved putting on the different uniforms from different time periods.

 The hat looks good on him!
 This is my "Really honey?  You're going to take a picture of me feeding the baby?" face :)
 They had these little kid play areas scattered throughout.  This one had little dress up uniforms and children's books about the military.  Really neat.

After lunch, it was back in the car to really head home.  It was an AWESOME week - great time spent with my mom and we absolutely LOVED getting to see all that we did!  The kids did amazing.  We packed a LOT in and there wasn't a lot of downtime - very full days - but they loved it and did great.  Judah wins "trooper of the year" award for as much as we were on the go this week!!
