2009/292: NASA (Part 1)

A must-see during our recent getaway to the Houston area was the Space Center. Last time we were in the Houston area we made it all the way to the entrance and decided to skip it because of the looooong lines. This time wasn’t nearly as crowded.
We spent about 5 hours there and didn’t get to see it all. Unfortunately we missed the tram tour. We stood in line for a while and then it started pouring… and I really didn’t want my camera to get wet, so we went back inside and had more fun there. The kids had a blast, too (no pun intended 😉 )
Sorry about the picture overload, even though I’m breaking this up into two posts. When I was little, I wanted to be an astonaut, you know? (Any of you facebook friends who take my how well do you know me test, should at least get this one question right!)

  3. It was so much fun, I definitely want to go back and see what we missed!
    Cheryl, I wish the lighting was better… I had the ISO really high and the ss was still pretty slow. Got lots of blurry ones because of it.

    Oh, it looks like a kids dream! Marley would love it since he is very into space and astronomy. You got so lucky that you didn’t have to fight crowds, sometimes that can ruin the best places.
