Mili absolutely loves pirates and pirate ships (I think from an episode of Backyardagins, it's a cartoon). Anyway, She thinks every boat is a pirate ship and she often walks around saying "ARRRHH" or "ARRRHH Matee" (taught to her by her lovely daddy when she was just learning to talk).
Saturday at the harbor Mili and Brian were able to take a tour through this ship (USS Constellation). They stayed in the ship longer than the tour took because Mili didn't want to leave it. She had a blast and I am glad that Brian could share that with her.

Mili "driving" the ship from the outside of the ship. This was located outside the ticket booth for kids to play with. Mili loved the fact that it really did turn. I had to run interference several times so she didn't knock herself in the head with it.
Is that a pair or what? Notice they have the same foot off the sidewalk at the same time. Like father like daughter.
