After our particularly sucky day on Tuesday (I was a more than a little peeved at some recent events), I decided that Gabe and I needed to get out of town and explore something. When I mentioned my idea to tour the USS Kidd, he was all for it! The kid loves "old war stuff". And then I realized that it wouldn't be very easy to do with Sarah-Belle along with us, so I came up with a plan to go check out The Myrtles Plantation. Gabe would have nothing of it; he wanted to tour the ship. There were some places that I couldn't go with Sarah in her sling attached to my front, but we managed to have fun anyway.

Yeah, I don't fix my hair very much these days. In this heat, it goes straight into a ponytail or something.
After we toured the ship, we went on to the Louisiana Art and Science Museum which was a short walk nearby. Children under the age of 3 were not allowed in the planetarium part of the museum, but again, we managed to have some fun. Gabe and I left refreshed and happy. Sarah slept all the way home.
