Kennedy Space Center – Day One, Part One

What a great day we had Sunday, when Jeff, Lindee, Mallory, Charlie, Clara and I headed to the Kennedy Space Center.  We started out at the Rocket Garden, mostly because it was outside, and rain was predicted later in the day.  The kids LOVED checking out the Apollo space capsule – here are Mallory and Charlie giving it a try.  I didn’t think my knees would bend enough for me to get down in there, but it was fun watching them!

The big draw of the first day was spending time in the Atlantis display. They did an amazing job of presenting it, with a couple of movies that told about the space shuttles came to be created. And then when they finished, the recording said, “Welcome home, Atlantis,” – which is I think what the controller said to every space shuttle that touched down – and the screen went clear, and there was the Atlantis behind it. I’m not going to lie, it was pretty emotional for me, and even Charlie and the girls said it made them get a lump in their throat.
