In just a few days, my brother will be graduating from the Naval Academy, so we are here in Annapolis for Commissioning Week. Sunday we spent a whopping 12 hours in the car, so I was pretty happy to have a busy day yesterday. Just a warning, a lot of pictures of the academy are coming your way this week. There's a lot going on, and I'm excited I get to share it with you all!
We got there just in time to see the plebes finally finish the Herndon climb and get the cover to the top-- after an hour and a half of stepping on each other's heads. (read more about the tradition here)
In front of Bancroft Hall. Fun fact: it's the largest dorm in the world.
4 years at USNA, in meme form of course.
I was supposed to go to the Superintendent's Luncheon with the rest of my family, but I dropped my ticket down a crack and it was lost forever. Amanda and I got to walk around the Yard instead.
I made my Mom stop here on the way back to the house to see if I could get the ice cream I talked about here.
THEY HAD IT and it was just as delicious as I remembered. If you ever get the chance to try Hershey's Cappuccino Crunch ice cream I suggest you do it (and let me know how much you love it).
We're all staying at a little beach house that's right on the water,
So we had to go take some pictures while the sun was setting.
I think I could get used to this.
