Everyone settled and comfortable on the bus ready for the upcoming adventure. Pit stop at McDonald’s for some grub. Cadets enjoying some Mickey D’s before heading back on the road. An overlook of the ship before arrival. Group photo of all the cadets and parents before aborning the ship. Girls taking pictures in the berthing area once getting comfortable and unpacking. Madison Beidleman taking a visit to the Lexington’s gift shop. Got the 3-D glasses on and ready to watch the movie in the MEGA Theater. Push-up contest between Jacqueline Paredes and Gregory Barba to se who gets dinner and breakfast first. All the cadets and parents gathered together to enjoy a delicious meal on the ships deck. Formal ceremony of the evening colors, posts of the US flag and different military branches flags. A touching quote from one of the museums exhibits. Girls in the berthing area ready for bed since everyone must be up at 6:30 am. The beautiful bridge during early sunrise.
