I have a ‘summer bucket list’ that I did a decent job of completing. One of the items on my list was a visit to the Kennedy Space Center. I have not been taking my ‘real’ camera with me much this summer because it’s hard when I’m solo to wrangle my son and take pictures. Other activities involve water, which does not mix well with camera equipment. I was going with my friend Katy, who I know reads my blog and is a blogger herself. I figured I needed to look the part, so along came the big camera.
They had an angry birds exhibit where the boys could throw pigs at a target. Kyton had fun just watching the older kids.
In the angry birds maze.
Checking out the big rockets.
Driving the spaceship.
Katy and I were amazed that the white part of the space ship was actually quilted fabric.
Climbing around the space station. Kyton could go much faster than I could!
Oh boys. They loved sticking their heads in the toilet since there was a camera in the bowl.
So the secret. When I was a kid I was REALLY into space. I went to a local space camp and even to the official space camp in Huntsville, Alabama. I had begged my parents to go, and when my mom called to sign my up they gave her a 2 kids discount, so she sent my sister too. I was so jealous at the time since she was not even the one that wanted to go. Now, looking back, we were in different areas and never saw each other. My sister went on to become a professional scientist, so I guess it all worked out.
We got to hear a talk from an actual astronaut, and Kyton took a nap during the presentation so I was actually able to listen.
