SWCC

This week I spent 3-1/2 days in the hospital because I had a fever on Monday when I went in for my blood check. Yuck.

I didn't actually feel very sick so it made the days extra long. Especially since I couldn't even leave my hospital room to go to the playroom or anything! You see, my germ fighting white blood cells were low so the nurses and doctors didn't want me to catch something from anyone else and since I had a fever I might give some bad germs to another kid. No fun.

Hannah and Nicky came to play with me on two different days.


Also, my big cousin Jake came all the way from Minnesota just to play Break-the-Ice with me. Isn't that great? Actually, Jake is a SWCC. Also known as the "Boat Guy" for the Navy Seals. He drives the boat and drops those Seal guys off for combat in far away places. (Man, I hope my mom has her facts straight!)
SWCC = Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crew


Cousin Jake made a few phone calls and set-up a ride on a SWCC boat for me! This is me and Jake cruisin' San Diego Bay. Look at the wake this boat throws up! I thought we were really moving fast, but Mom said they took it nice and easy with me onboard.


Jason, our driver for the trip, took us over by the big aircraft carrier that's having some work done on it.
Me and Jake again!


The Downtown Skyline.

My favorite: the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. I've never seen it from the water before. It's very tall!


Oh yeah... they let me drive the boat... (That's my cousin Mikey sitting behind me. Mikey and his Dad got to come with us!)



This is me and Jason... while I'm driving the boat.



This is my crew. back row: Mr. Shawn SWCC Instructor, Jake, Cary SWCC Instructor. front row: Jason and Me (driving!)

Thanks Jake and Mr. Shawn (SWCC Instructor) for letting me check out your cool boat. Next time can we set-up the guns on the front and the back?
