Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Saturday night was the Marine Corps Birthday Ball at the National Museum of Naval Aviation. We started off by going to dinner at Jackson's Steakhouse. The food was amazing and I would love to go back sometime. After dinner we headed over to the Naval Air Museum. When we arrived the party was already in full force. I always love looking at all the ball gowns and can't wait to go shopping for next year. The one thing that was not fun about the Ball is that the fire alarm went off and the staff at the museum made us all evacuate and stand outside for what seemed like forever before letting us all in. Of course it was a false alarm but it was so annoying and ruined the mood. Everything had to shut down. Once it was all back in gear we went it, got a couple of drinks, had our picture taken, danced a little and then it was time to go pick up the girls. I would say it was a good night overall. The best part was that it was just us two and we could enjoy the evening together. Sorry I don't have more photos but I didn't take a camera(gasp) and didn't have anyone at home to get a photo of us before we left together. Here are a couple of us individually.
