We visited an Iowa National Guard Armory Friday.
We've driven past this particular armory many times.
Gates are always closed.
Word Geek was at work.
He's been working a lot.
And working very hard.
I really wish he could have come.
Love Bug & Lizard Man fought.
They drove me bonkers!!
That's why we usually go on field trips with dad.
He helps with distraction.
Or holds Love Bug when she needs to be held.
They were tired.
They got bored.
It was a rather long tour.
2 hours 2 minutes.
And they fought more.
I think now.
I should have taken photos of them fighting.
To show them later.
These shots caught a tiny bit of it.
There were some neat moments.
And cool things to see.
We learned many things.
For instance, did you know?
The National Guard is the only branch
of the many military branches (Army, Navy, Marines, etc.)
that can be called upon by the governor.
We received food rations to try at home.
3500 calories worth.
