GRANDMA'S VISIT AND THE ROCKET SHIPS


Well, last week we were lucky enough to have Grandma Johnson come and visit us on her way to her Mary Kay convention in Dallas. We didn't tell Ashlee that she was coming so she was SURPRISED when she got here. We had a blast hanging out with Grandma. We went shopping, sight seeing, shopping, swimming, and did I mention shopping?

We also went to the NASA Space Center here in Houston. We all had a good time and it was really cool. I was totally AMAZED at the size of the space shuttles. They always look so tiny on television.



Here we are standing in front of one of the rocket boosters. This is just one of 5 on this section. I am telling you they are huge!
Don't worry Nate, we will hold up the moon. You just stand there and look pretty!


At the Space Center they had this bungie jumping trampline and the line to do it was pretty long. Ashlee was determined that she wanted to do it. So, Ashlee and I waited in line for an hour (the longest hour of her life! And mine too!) but she finally got a turn. They put the harness on her and it was so big that they had to keep cinching it tighter. Finally she got her four minutes to jump she had a ball!! When she was done she wanted to do it again, even if she had to wait in line for another hour. Needless to say I was not going to wait for another hour for her to jump again!
Here we are waiting in line. We are finally at the front!
Cinch it tighter!
