U.S.S North Carolina...




the kids were SO excited to see this battleship. It was huge ( small, for the size of ships we have today!) but the kids loved exploring every nook and cranny. We were able to go on all the different levels of the ship, we saw where they ate, where they cooked, slept, got there mail etc.etc. It was awesome.

It gave us such an understanding of life on a Navy Ship, and gave me such respect for the people who serve our country. We got lucky, as we ran into a Chief form the Navy who was retired and was there to help with the tour. He took us into his office and told us about how they kept records of each man on the boat, and how they earn time off the ship.....then he made each of the kids there own cards to get off the ship. They were able to pick there rank and what job they liked the best. It was really neat. Annie picked the lab, Jared picked the "big guns on deck", and Katie and Ella both picked the bakery.

Definitely worth the money to see. The kids are still talking about it.......
