So, we’re spending a few days in Alabama visiting the (grown) kids and grandkids. Today we’re off to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center with the boys and Kameran.

Entrance to Rocket Center

Before we enter the Rocket Center, we can’t help but notice a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird on outside display…

Naturally, this requires the USAF legacy airman to capture a selfie with this USAF legacy aircraft, and then one with the boys, of course…

Once inside, there was so much to see and do…especially for the kids. There were a lot of educational displays, simulations, a centrifuge, etc. so on…

Inside the main exhibit hall, there was a full-size Saturn V rocket…

Of course, Alex and Kam would rather enjoy some zero gravity inside the lunar module…

and snap a pic or two (or three) inside a space capsule trainer. Kam is riding fashionably on the outside of the capsule…

There was so much to do and see, and we had a great time. Of course, by the end of the day, Adam was all photo’d out, as you can see…
