8 X 30 242- Another Update on Molly

Well it seems that Molly is having a great time onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. Monday she got underway and it was just a day of getting out to sea. Then on Tuesday they had an airshow and Molly got lost!!!! Where was Travis? Yesterday was a not doing anything day too or at least that is what I think. She has been rocking and rolling on the ship and not sea sick at all. She loves it or at least that is what I am told. She is working hard on her homework and spending quality time with her pops.

Tracking back a little here. This is at Diamondhead in HI.

This is a Prowler refueling from a Rhino.

Two Planes dropped bombs in the water. Molly thought this was awesome. She loves the guns and bombs.

Just got an update from Travis through email. Molly and him toured the CATTC( the air traffic control area), got the reactor debreif (Molly loved it, Travis said it was boring), and then a tour of Shaft Alley. Molly also enjoyed Shaft Alley. However I have no idea what that is. I will have to update or tell you guys tomorrow night. I am waiting on a reply from Travis. Maybe he will leave a comment and let us know!

Well guys we are on a serious countdown. Molly will be home from San Diego Saturday night and then Travis will be home late next week. I am so super excited! It will be so great to finally have my hubbie home!

Love it!! I would have to agree that a reactor debrief would be boring. Great pics and she looks like she is having a lot of fun.

Wish I could be there for his arrival. Y’all have fun. I’m still laughing about Juju’s elf costume.

Shaft Alley is where the shaft that drives the propeller goes out through the skin of the ship. It is just a room with a giant rotating shaft in it. She thought it was great. It is funny, all the stuff that I would think is really lame she loves.

Shaft alley is where you can see the shaft to the propeller on the ship; there are 4 of them.
