Last weekend we had an amazing time at the Coast Guard base with the girl scouts. It was a special girl scout outing led by girl scout troups and active duty coast guard personnel.
There were 3 different stations that the girls rotated through. And we got to walk in between the hangers, which was a fabulous use of excess energy!
The day was so educational and fun for the girls and parents alike. I was very impressed with all the incredible organization that went into the event, and the time that was donated by the active duty coast guardsmen and women.
