Anchors Aweigh

We went to see the U.S.S. Alabama Battleship. It was so cool. The tickets were $12 but you got to wander around the battleship and take as much time as you wanted. I tell you, I don't think I could have lived on that ship. It was like a mini city but I can't imagine how it would be filled with men (or can I imagine, I love a man in a peacoat). It must have been so crowded. I pretended I was Gene Kelly when we finally made it to the top of the battleship. Annie was bugged by how the boat moved and couldn't imagine what it was like out on the open sea. We've been hooked on The Deadliest Catch reruns this week so I imagine she was thinking of that. This was a must see for sure. After we toured the battleship, we went to Lambert's for some throwed rolls. Dan loves that place.

Throwed rolls? Interesting. Never heard of them.

That battle ship looks totally cool. Kev and Enoch would love to do something like that.

Oh, you found another Lamberts, eh? Was this Annie's first time at Lamberts? Your pictures are wonderful. Annie, I see your camera in my favorite pic. Kat, are you loving your special time with Annie. She is such a special, loving person. I hope she finds someone who loves her like Dan loves you. She wants to spend special time with her older sister.......and this trip provides for that experience. My daughters are so beautiful. All my love......Mommy

I love the Charlie's Angels picture with Dan! Yum, throwed rolls, love 'em.

I agree, those ships are like mini cities. The submarine I went on had mini bunk beds that folded down off the wall and a little canvas bag to put your belongings in the hung off the bunk. Talk about traveling light.
