Spaced Out

June 15, 2009

So our big trip to see the shuttle launch didn't go quite as planned. The launch was cancelled. Wish we had known that before getting everyone out of bed at 3:45am. Luckily a security guard caught us in the parking lot before we made the drive over to the Kennedy Space Center. We were all pretty sad, especially Noah. So instead of heading back to bed we headed to the beach where we chased ghost crabs, spotted Venus and Mars, and basked in the moonlight. Although we didn't get to see the launch, we still had a good time. We rented a condo at Cape Canaveral Beach which meant we could see the Shuttle on the launch pad while floating in the ocean. Probably the only time we'll ever have that experience! Waiting to hear the re-scheduled date for the launch and seriously considering a return trip to try it all over again.

I hope you all get a chance to see the shuttle. That has to be an exciting thing and something the children will remember always :0)

Oh, I'm sorry! I have memories of the whole family gathering in front of the TV to watch a launch at the time when they were aired: the foreign language, the incredible concept, to us it all seemed from ... well, out of space! Hope you'll be able to make the rescheduled date.
