Okay, so after doing a morning brainstorm with the Family Forward team, my Mom and I headed out to Cape Canaveral with my nephews to explore the Kennedy Space Center.
Moo grew up during the space race and watched many of the launches on live TV:
We had fun:
The coolest part of the whole museum was when they put everyone in a big room and showed this cool movie about the quest to build the Atlantis space shuttle. They talked about how hard it was to build and design and how it took them many years to get it right. Then they showed the Atlantis launching and in space. Then they showed it landing back on Earth. Then they made the screen transparent so you could see the actual, IRL, Atlantis space shuttle: Selfie, gone awry: Thinking back, it’s definitely one of the coolest places I have been.
If you are thinking of going, GO. It’s a bit pricey – but totally worth it. They even have a rocket simulator ride that makes you feel like you are really going into space. I may/may not have had a mini panic attack, which I think was the whole point.
I LOVE YOU,
