Monkey goes to Fort Knox

On Friday, Monkey went to work with Husband. He tried to get a shot in front of the Fort Knox Gold Depository But there were too many signs basically saying, "Don't take pictures!" Oh well, let's be Safety's friend and just keep on moving to the next thing.

Fort Knox is the home of the armor's General George Patton Museum. The museum offers a glimpse into Patton's legacy and accomplishments.

There are many of his personal memorabilia from coats, and medals, flags he carried.

"Hey, look at this fun tank. I can drive a car, I bet I can drive this tank!" The Patton museum is like walking through the history of tanks. You can see the most basic of tanks from WWI to now.

"Okay, it is a little harder than it looks. Maybe I can just hang out here. "

"I think I need a star on my shoulder. After this Spring Break Getaway, I have earned it!"

Fast forward to Saturday evening.......while putting the kids to bed, I heard this sound that I have come to dread. A high pitched siren from outside.....DANG! I just got Will settled into bed. Husband put Livi to sleep a little earlier. A tornado warning was sounding. We live in a two story home with a basement. OF COURSE the bedrooms are on the second floor. I ran to get Husband, we each grabbed a kid (and I grabbed my Iphone ...priorities you know) and went to the basement.

Don't worry, Will has taken to sleeping with Monkey. So he was safe and sound in the basement. Nothing like a little excitement on a Saturday night.

Happy weekend, y'all. We have one more activity in store for Monkey before he heads on his way.

That's a cute idea about taking pictures with the monkey.

Yikes on the crazy weather. Hope you didn't have to stay down there long.
