Mondays Mug: Kennedy Space Center



I can't imagine anything that would be more thrilling than to watch the Space Shuttle launch.



If we would have been there just a week later, my dream may have become reality. 


Monday's Mug:  Kennedy Space Center



The blizzard that we drove through while exiting Frostburg, Md.  that first day of March in 2008 wasn't about to dampen our spirits.



Our destination: Florida


We visited relatives, and set aside some fun/educational time as well.


 This place is awesome beyond words.  We did an all day tour.  I took this picture on the bus as we were on our way to the Space Center.


Woahhhh.... Getting too old for this...


My Handsome hubby...
 pretending to be an astronaut.


There he is, first row-far left.  
I chickened out on this ride (simulation) at the last minute.  
That explains the empty seat right beside him.
  I'm such a baby.


There was so much to see and do.


I touched a piece of Mars!


Fascinating place!! Good food! Souvenirs!


Behind us you can see the Space Shuttle Endeavour which was scheduled to launch on the 11th of March... just a week later.  Any adverse weather conditions or even a minor problem will prevent the Shuttle from launch on it's scheduled date.  The security there is tight, and everything has to be perfect before launch.  

We had fun.  Met new people.  Learned a lot.  And brought home a mug.  

Have a Magnificent Monday my friends!
