Kennedy Space Center

WOW!!! I wish I was a kid again so I could experience things again... At least I'm able to enjoy them now as an adult with my child. D and I had a great weekend camping out at Kennedy Space Center. The team that put this together did a wonderful job at putting together a jam packed evening for our troop. We met an astronaut, made and launched rockets, watched two IMAX movies, ate astronaut ice cream and slept under a rocket ship. D'Angelo really made the most of this trip and learned so much. Who knows, he might end up being an astronaut someday. They sure made him feel that he could if he really wanted it.

Useless trivia: Did you know that 11 out of 12 astronauts that walked on the moon were Eagle Scouts? This bit of information really impressed our boys that are embarking on the journey to earn their Eagle Scout.

I was emotional watching the live footage of the first man of the moon. All the astronauts spoke with such passion of their different missions to space and how they felt looking back and seeing Earth from so far away. It made them appreciate life so much more. I was teary eyed... YES I know, I'm a cry baby.

Here are some favorite photos from this weekend.





That's all folks... Have a wonderful week...
