"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Marine Corps Ball - 234th Birthday Ball

We went to Wilmington last night to the USMC Birthday Ball. We had a lot of fun. It was really a lot of fun watching those Marines dance. Marines really know how to have fun on the dance floor. :)

I did get some pics, not very many though. There was some neat art in our hotel room and our hotel room view was nice too. Even though the weather was overcast, rainy and windy.

Here is the cake...



This was an origami shadow box that was in our hotel room...




Another piece of art from our room...





This was the view from our hotel room window. That is the USS North Carolina across the river...






I am really glad we got the chance to go this year. It is always nice to get together with other Marines and their spouses and enjoy a birthday party with dinner and dancing.

Great pictures Chrystal. You look beautiful and your hubby is handsome in his uniform. Me loves a man in a uniform. :-)

Looks like a great hotel and I imagine on a clear day that would have been an amazing view.

Glad you had such a good time!
