The boys and I loaded up the car at 4:30am and drove down to Columbia to see Ben at PMA. They had a family day where they gave us a tour of the place Ben trains, gave us a nice holiday meal, and demonstrated some of the task that he has to do on drill weekends. It was fun to see what Ben's life is like while he is gone every month, but didn't look like fun to do in his shoes. Bradley liked getting to see "army work" and especially enjoyed playing in the army vehicles that they had on display. He also enjoyed taking a lot of pictures... some of which are posted here.
