Happy Birthday Marines!

Tonight the we attended the Marine Ball, held annually at places around the world where there are US Marines to celebrate the the birthday of the Marine Corps.  This year the Corps turns 236 years old.  The ball is a fun way to honor the men and women who serve, and to specifically honor the men and women who serve here with us.  

Eric and I in our finery.  The dress I am wearing almost didn't happen, a big thank you to the seamstress at the Commissary for  altering the dress quickly.

Obligatory self portrait!  Eric is looking good with a beard, no??  Be sure and tell him how good it looks next time you see him :)

Fancy dessert super close up!!

All in all it was a fun night!  Happy birthday Marines, and thank you for your service!!
