Newport Tour

Though we've been here before, my dad just can't resist the chance of sharing the the church where George Washington once worshiped ... 
George Washington's Sacred Fire
The story of our first President's true faith

So much history ... 

So much to think and ponder

"So what actually keeps this building up are these hidden steel frames"

"Steel? Now that's what we are talking about."

Our family shot grows


"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom." How did these men live?

"Mr. Hankock!"

As we go by the Newport Armory, I discovered the door, usually locked, is cracked. Sure enough, there were STAFF!

These cannons were forged at the Paul Revere forge. 

Matthew blends in with the natives. 

Bear skin or not, you smell funny!

Melanie brandishes a pike actually used during the war for the United States Independence.

Your family is really growing. Jack is doubling it's size in weight alone ;-)! What do you feed that child? He must be as big as William now! Love and miss you...
p.s. some of those armory pictures remind me of "A night in the museum" movie...I can imagine them coming to life :-)
