Shuttle Launch

We were very fortunate to get to see the last shuttle launch of Atlantis. We had a terrific viewpoint…6 miles away on a Florida causeway (the closest you can get is four miles away unless you are in a control room I hear). We had to be at a mall four hours early, then we took a bus to get to the causeway and still had about two and half hours before the actual launch. We brought a picnic blanket, umbrella, and borrowed two beach chairs.

Of course I made sure we had the right t-shirt for the event…

Blast off!

Our little cupcake was excited to eat lunch on a picnic blanket…

And we of course had to take a few family photos at the causeway…

And then it was time for the big event! They told us to avoid snapping photos (you get one in the mail) so you can actually witness the event, but I had to take just a couple of pictures…

It was truly an awesome event. I am so glad that we got the opportunity to view the launch.

Our little cupcake said “where go?” after it disappeared from view!
