Tall Ships at Erie, PA

We took a day off of our regular schedule and went to Erie, PA to see the tall ships. We toured the museum and two of the ships (there were five of them.) It was fun to see them, but there were a lot of people there! Some of the highlights.....
the presentation of how a cannon is loaded.....
a small replica ship firing upon the larger ship.....
enjoying a view from above....
then after lunch, Darrell and I took the kids to Presque Isle....we enjoyed the warm sand (as it was only in the upper 60s) and the kids played in the waves at the water's edge (getting pretty wet, but they didn't care.) It was a relaxing day for us!

My favorite picture of the day is the foot picture....this signifies to me relaxed time spent together.

What a fun day! I never noticed the uncanny resemblance between Darrell and George before...;)

Hey, if you're interested, I just started a Wednesday link-up for moms to share a post about a day in the life of their homeschool. It's encouraging to see how different families spend their days learning/having fun. If you want to post on it just go to http://alisonagnew.blogspot.com/2010/09/ordinary-days-link-up.html

Love ya!
