Memorial Day: Intrepid

This year we thought that heading down to the Intrepid would be a great way to spend Memorial Day and celebrate the end of Fleet Week. I hate to say that we've lived here for almost 10 years and still hadn't gone to see it until this past month. But this summer we're all about new adventures, so it quickly moved to the top of the list.

It was a really lovely time actually. A great way to honor those who had served to protect us on Memorial Day. My grandfather was in the Navy at a very young age and served on a ship similar to this one, so it was really interesting to imagine the kids of things he had experienced.

The boys had a great time. There were all kinds of things to see and play on which made it a pleasant experience for everyone! We particularly loved seeing the different jets, the marching band play, and getting super awesome temporary Fleet Week tattoos (not pictured unfortunately, but trust me on this one!!!)

Noah totally chickened out on this thing. We waited in line for like 25 minutes and then he got up there and in 2 seconds he freaked out and asked to come down.
(I might have made the guy hang him up there for a few extra seconds before letting him down as a little payback!)
Happy Memorial Day!
