Joe had a "briefing" on Friday morning at Fort Dix (New Jersey). I had mistakenly said he had to "teach a class," which is what he did, but the more technical military term is "briefing." My bad. (He still taught a class ... in my terminology.)
In the afternoon we took the kids swimming on post.
After only two hours, it started to thunder, so they closed the pool.
Fort Dix is right next to an Air Force base, so we drove through to see the planes.
On Saturday we visited the Howell Living History Farm. What a beautiful farm and a beautiful day. We had perfect weather.
The children excitedly pumped water (and fought to take turns).
If only taking out the trash stirred up the same enthusiasm.
They walked a log balance beam.
Participated in a tomato-canning demonstration.
And walked over the footbridge over and over.
Except Spenser. She was afraid of the gaps between the planks of the footbridge. After halfway across, she would go no further.
