Family Vacation


Oops a wee bit late posting this - however I had a ton of photos to go through!!
(Caution - photo heavy post!)

We rarely go on family vacations because traveling with five or six kids is hard! Hotels usually don't allow too many kids in one room and its just expensive for food, gas, attractions. Yowza!

This year, however, we decided to take a family trip to Bremerton, Washington to visit my sister and her new baby. 

We also took in the sights of the area. Bremerton has a neat ship that you can tour. It was an actual Navy Destroyer from the Vietnam war. The U.S.S. Turner Joy has now been retired and used as a floating museum. 

The boys LOVED IT! I'd rate this as a MUST DO on your "Things To Do In Bremerton" list...in case you have such a list. 

It was  self-guided tour and much of the ship was available to crawl in, around, and on. 

Okay...off to the pix!
