Lost in Space

This afternoon we had the opportunity to tour the Space & Rocket Center and enjoy a great lunch, courtesy of the Madison County Medical Association. William is our future astronaut and he was in awe of the Saturn V rockets and the full scale model of the Space Shuttle. We didn't get to spend as much time at all the exhibits that we would have liked, since the kids seemed to prefer the kiddie area and, of course, the gift shop! We managed to get out of there with only one toy that they all could share.

This was the big ride for the little ones. It shot them up around 20 feet then bounced up an down a bit before going back up again. The first time Rebecca rode she whined and cried a bit, but not five minutes later, she wanted back on. She ended up riding it 4 or 5 times. We even let Vivian on it and she was smiling the entire time.

Looks like they all had a great time there. I see they have added some new things since we were there last. I guess we need to go back again.
