Afternoon church with toddlers is the worst. Who's with me? Naptime for us in generally around 12:30 pm. Church starts at 1pm. So --- we can either try (always unsuccessfully) to put Walt down for his nap early, one of us can stay home with him (we really only do this when he is sick), or we can ditch the nap altogether and just wrangle a mess of a kid for 3 hours. And then, inevitably, on the 2.5 minute drive home, we end up with this:
So this Sunday, we grabbed a box of Wheat Thins and just kept right on driving. We decided to head North, since that is mostly unexplored territory for us. We wound up in Everett, where Landon turned towards the waterfront. We saw a sign for "Naval Base," so of course Landon headed straight there. The next thing we knew, we had rounded a corner and stumbled on this:
USS Nimitz is only one of the most famous carriers in the United States Navy. Who knew?
So, Walt got a 45 minute nap, and Landon got to geek out over military equipment. Best Sunday drive ever. :)
