I know you're jealous!

What a great day!  We are so happy to finally be able to spend some quality time with my family and I am just in heaven!!  This morning we got up and left the house at 4:00 am...yes we did.  We drove over to Titusville to view the last night launch ever of the NASA Space Shuttle system.  The Discovery's second to last launch was amazing!!  Of course the event was dampened by the fact that in our rush to leave this morning, I left my camera battery at home :0(.  BUT - I did get an awesome video!  It was so great to be there considering that there are only 3 launches left....ever!  The way the shuttle lit up the sky was amazing and then the rumble of the ground about a minute latter made you feel like you were in an earth quake!!  It was Joe's first launch and probably our last....what a great way to start the day.

After the launch was over, we drove over to Cocoa Beach and enjoyed a morning in the sun!  It was breezy and just the right temperature!  The Atlantic was FREEZING so nothing more than my toes went in, but the vitamin D absorbed from the sun today was much needed.  I am going to finish off the day by shopping with mom and then reading by the pool with Joe....remind me again why I don't move here????


  1. You know we are very jealous. That launched looked awesome. We would have loved to see that too.

  2. Hey chicka! that wouldve been fun to see the launch. Um the reason you havent moved down there is because i would miss you too much:(

  3. OH you both have to come with us next time!!! My parents are super cool (Jamie knows that - mom was talking about how much she misses her girls) and they are so happy for you all to visit...anytime!
