USS MIdway

     USS Midway (CVB/CVA/CV-41) was an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy, the lead ship of her class, and the first to be commissioned after the end of World War II. Active in the Vietnam War and in Operation Desert Storm, she is currently a museum ship at the USS Midway Museum, in San Diego, California.

This ship is actually a really fun ship to go to. The place is so large that if you are a history junkie like I, then you need a whole day and to leave the kids that are under 10 at home with a sitter. Why, well there are a lot of things that they can't do. One is going on the little rides that they have and also seeing the help of the ship. You wait in line for about an hour to see that. Everything else they can see. They have so many planes on the ship that if you have a little one who loves ships and planes that is the way to go. They have a cafe and a souvenir shop that has a lot of good stuff in there. Here is a little secret...don't buy the picture that they take on the background drop because you can share it from the website. If you do want to purchase it is about $30.00.

 I felt very small next to this ship!
 Decided to be a bell
 They put this plexiglass here to show you how far they go down on just a ladder. I couldn't get on there for i am afraid of heights in some instances.

 Nastya and I. You get headphones and a box thing that you plug in the number and it tells you about the station you are at.
 We all need our clothes washed
