Beach Weekend 2011

We just got back from a three day beach trip to Pensacola. There are so many things about a weekend at the beach that I love. In fact, I cannot imagine a summer without a little sand and salty water...it just isn't summer without a bit of both as far as I am concerned.

This year was a little different though...it rained from sun up until sun down on Sunday...4 inches...the most rain in one day in Pensacola since 1988. What luck. But it was precisely because of the deluge that we finally checked out the Naval Aviation Museum - something we have talked about doing for years - and it was A-mazing. In fact, we could not believe we had been missing out for all these years.

I am already looking forward to a return trip when the kids are a little older so that they can ride in the simulators and I can actually read a bit more about each exhibit. I will tell you more about it soon, but I am busy with work and dealing with the logistics for the last few weeks of summer...so in the meantime, here is is a pic of Luz and James, ready for some sun:

I love the Naval Aviation Museum. I haven't been in years though. I think the last time was when I was in NROTC at Tulane.
