USS Alabama

I apologize for not posting earlier, but I lost our USB chord when we were in Alabama, then when we got back I didn't have internet, then the batteries went dead in my camera, then there was the whole lazy factor. So here is my attempt to catch up. We went to the Battleship USS Alabama. This ship was used in WWII and was docked in Mobile when it was decommisioned. It is a real awesome sight to see and so much fun! I recommend it to anyone who is traveling that way.

See the dark clouds behind us. We got lucky and didn't get rained on, but the thunderstorms were fairly frequent during our visit to Mobile.
The kids had to climb over all the doorways, but they were real troopers about it. They never complained, they were too anxious to find out what was on the other side of each door.
One of the old scuba diving outfits they had on display. Pretty creepy!
Tobie in the brig. I wish we had one of these at home! He didn't want to come out.
Miriam is ready for chow time in the galley.
These were the bunks, they actually seemed pretty comfortable, but you might want to make friends with your neighbor since you are so close to each other!
Thank goodness Mobile Bay is safe with these two manning the guns.

Our family had just gone to the USS two weeks before and I didn't take many pictures. I did get the kids on some guns. We did have a good time...Chelle
