Free Stuff

So the military is great - everything is free. EVERYTHING. Our housing, the doctor, prescriptions, and my new favorite - SEA WORLD!!! Plus we get discounts just about everywhere we go. As long as we have no shame and are willing to flaunt our military-ness around, we can get a couple bucks knocked off just about anywhere we go. It's pretty cool. Here are a few pictures of some of our recent CHEAPO excursions:



The U.S.S. Lexington in Corpus Christi

It took us 4 hours to tour this ship - and Edward made sure we didn't miss any of it.

Selena Statue

Okay, the military didn't provide this one, but what person in their right mind would give up an opportunity to remember Selena?!? Plus it was free, too. If you're wondering about the weird angle, there was an old latina abuela with her granddaughter worshipping the statue on the other side. I had to wait until they weren't looking to strike a pose. I'm such a blasphemer. Selena Vive!


The Air Show at Randolph Air Force Base

This isn't Edward's base, just another of the bajillion military bases in San Antonio. Because we're military, we didn't have to wait in line, we just drove right into the base and parked on a random street and walked right into the show. It was AWESOME! And it was free.



Edward's Bum

Always free.

He's gonna kill me for adding this one! Heehee

Hey, looks like you guys both have cute bums! Vote for Marian because she has a cute bum. Sure miss you Mar. And I can't believe that you have been married over a year. Hey, maybe you should take a free trip to come see us. Staying with us would be free too...you could add it to your list!
