It’s Easter Sunday and the boys awoke to find their Easter baskets…candy, candy, candy…

After a great day in the pool and playing a little catch in the courtyard, we enjoy a nice dinner to round-out the weekend.

Wanting to just get away from it all, we travel to Orlando to spend the weekend at our Hilton Grand Vacations resort. Nothing planned, really, just dinner on the town and hanging-out by the pool…

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…

Alex in the Time Tunnel

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

and the actual Command Module from the Apollo 16 mission…

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…

Today is Opening Day for the Spring Little League Baseball season! Alex didn’t want to play this season, as we’re still wrapping-up Basketball season, and he didn’t want to miss any games. But Adam (top row, second from the left) leans baseball and is playing for the Braves this year…

Let’s see: Baseball, CHECK! Basketball, CHECK! Throw in a football and we’ve got it covered! 🙂
