This Saturday we celebrated the 239th Marine Corps birthday at the Marine Corps Ball. The ball was held at Weidmann’s downtown, in a private room upstairs. The last two balls that we attended (in Pensacola and Richmond) were both HUGE but this ball was small and more intimate. There were only around 60 people total at the ball! Sometimes I think these small balls are more fun because you can actually spend time with everyone in attendance! We had a good group of friends there and had a ton of fun at our table.
We ate lobster and shrimp spring rolls, prime rib, and (the world famous!) Weidmann’s black bottom pie. We laughed until we cried as we convinced Cara that her husband ate her pie, and danced to throwback prom style tunes on the makeshift dance floor. I am so glad that we decided to live on base as we have made some wonderful friends living in this little community.
