Can't believe that we got 13 pieces of luggage into Granpa's car - we'll see how we do - it's going to be rough!!

Continuing the San Diego fun time bucket list. We took the gang to Aquatica Water Park in Chula Vista. The day started a little crazy, as always, but with free tickets from the military it turned out great. Poops really loves the water parks. He's just like his brothers.

Wanted to add this to the record. James, Colby and I did a nice bucket list activity of snorkeling at La Jolla Cove. Lots of fun; James even got over his hesitancy of going out in the ocean. Beautiful fish, seals, good times. Trying to get as much fun as possible before heading over to Italy.

Here we Go!!!

First post in an extremely long time - and it's going to be a start, or re-start of our European adventures. A lot has happened since the last postings, too much to keep up with, so let's start with the most recent. We'll start with the end of the time on the Boxer. The last moments on the Boxer were up in Seattle during their fleet week. The ship and a few destroyers headed up to do some patriotic duty. It was a lot of fun, but very bittersweet; leaving a good duty station is always like that.
