This year we celebrated the Marine Corps' 236th' Birthday up in DC at the Sheraton at Tyson's Corner. We brought the kids along and went swimming in the hotel pool earlier in the day so they would be worn out and watch movies.
Then it was time for mom and dad to get all dressed up and celebrate! McKenzie brought a friend and all the kids hung out and had fun in our hotel room just down the hall from where the ball was! It was nice to be able to slip away and check on them from time to time.
I borrowed my Great Aunt's fur coat for the occasion!
We enjoyed a lovely program and dinner.
And then it was time to par-tay!!!!!
Here is Nick with our friend Rebecca Croes...
