The twins love to work puzzles right now, so they were really drawn in by these huge foam space puzzles.
Pierce liked this bottle rocket launcher. You press it down and it fills with air, then you let go and it soars up on the line. It was kind of noisy, so he was initially scared, but then he came around.
Space suited Pierce.
They had one of those globe things that shows a movie you can sit and watch.
It was nice and cool in the room, and I loved watching the movie evolve across the giant glowing globe.
Outside is a huge rocket. It was used years ago to launch Sam the Monkey and Miss Sam the Monkey into space. The flight took a mere 3 minutes.
On the top of the visitor's center is an observation deck.
You can see many of the satellites across the field.
The boys had fun pretending to talk on the phone.
And of course, we had to finish off our visit with some Astronaut ice cream. This was the first time the boys had tried it, and they loved it! I hadn't had it since I was a kid myself, and I have to say - it does taste just like ice cream!
