Shuttle launch

Hi my friends!

First of all, I spent a good part of my Sunday morning picking out a new blog banner and background from House of 3... So I now present you my NEW blog, all decked out in a cutey patootey, whimsical, colorful, happy, Sassafras-like design by Rhonna Farrer! I hope you like it! :-)

My DH had a spur-of-the-moment idea and sometimes those are the best! Since I've never seen a shuttle launch before, he decided to take me to Titusville, FL (about 3 and a half hours from Miami) to witness this incredible sight. WOW! Ady and D'Angelo joined us and we made it into a fun ROAD TRIP!!! Ady doesn't do very well on road trips, folks, but what a trooper she was... LOL! We really enjoyed ourselves :-)

We arrived about 30-40 minutes before the launch, and we joined many others on the back lawn of a condominium complex across the bay from the Kennedy Space Center.

What a view! The pics were very difficult to shoot, but just imagine a pitch black sky suddenly lit up by the brightness of this shuttle.

Really awesome stuff. If you've never witnessed this, you have to plan a trip.

Happy Sunday!

Your blog is adorable. Thank you for helping with mine because you know I like instant gratification and I hate to read directions. LOL Thank you for inviting us. That was an amazing experience that I shared with you guys and D. The drive didn't seem that long since we spoke the whole time there. LOL
