***update - I just received a call from my sister Robin, that yesterday, the day I actually wrote this post was the day of the 23rd anniversary of the loss of the Challenger Space Shuttle. ***
I live near a really neat and educational tourist attraction. The U.S. Space and Rocket Center. Where the actual movie "Space Camp" was filmed.
Do you want to know when the last time I went there was? I think I was in 7th grade. THAT was a long long long time ago. I don't even know if my kids have gone. Really its a shame. I need to take them.
We did go one time when my cousins were in from Michigan. I am thinking it was probably at Christmas time, cause from the looks of these pictures it was cold!
Don't ask me which rocket that is in the background. I really should know, but I don't. Sad to, since I only drive by it about once a week. Robin, Lisa, Holly, Lorie, Kristen, anybody want to help me out here??
Here we are in front of a space suit. Oooooooooo
It was real and I bet you its still there in the museum, if I ever went there to see it.
I remember one of my favorite things about going to the Space and Rocket Center was getting Dehydrated Ice Cream. That stuff was awesome. :)
Update #2 - My sister works out at NASA and just ate some dehydrated ice cream the other day, and is going to go get me some. :)
So if your ever up in North Alabama and want to go, let me know. I'd like to go there myself. Maybe we could go together. :)
