San Diego and the USS Midway

Daddy finished his last class - and his second bachelor's degree!! Not only that, but it was our fall break at the same time. To celebrate it all, we went to San Diego...and took Nanny and Papa with us! Papa and Nanny left on Friday morning...and took Elijah with them. I (Josiah) was star student of the week, so I got to take a special treat in to school on Friday afternoon. Daddy and Mommy brought in otter pops and then we left school after snack time. We drove with them and met Papa and Nanny in San Diego.

On Saturday we went to SeaWorld! It was so fun to see all of our favorite shows...including Shamu Rocks!! We were SO tired on Sunday from our long day at SeaWorld. We went to see the USS Midway that morning. The USS Midway is a big aircraft carrier that was actually used in the wars. It has tons of planes on it and we got to see all parts of it and how sailors lived on it. Here we are in the hangar. This is Eljiah and Daddy in the cockpit of a plane:Elijah trying to get himself buckled in to a pilot's seat:
Elijah listening to the tour:
Wow - a big jet! I wonder if this one is like the ones that fly over our house?
Filling in our test answers so we can earn our honorary pilot wings:

We found seats in the ready room!
The workers wear all different colors on the deck so that they know what each other's jobs are. It's too loud for them to talk out there when the jets are flying around.
That's a lot of buttons!
Jonathan thinks it stinks in here...Mommy thinks someone with a lot of cologne was in there before us...

Oh no! We got thrown in the brig!
We had a great trip to San Diego. Unfortunately we were all sick during fall break. Hopefully we'll get to do some fun things next week when we have early dismissal at school for three days. We really want to go to San Diego again. Maybe you can help convince Daddy and Mommy to take us one more time this year...
