After dropping Pippi and Jem at AHG camp we drove North to Huntsville. We stayed at a new hotel called Home 2 Suites. I think it’s a cheaper division of Hilton. Anyways, once we got into the room I made quick work of cooking pizzas with the waffle iron. It worked out really well. Then we spent an hour or so swimming in the Hotel pool. By day two the kids were a lot more comfortable. It’s odd how easily everyone fell asleep while we were there. Maybe it was our busy day or the fact that I could see everyone from my bed. lol
We got up the next morning excited to learn and see all the space stuff we could. An allergic reaction to sunscreen tried to ruin our fun but I’m a mom and I brought Tylenol and Benadryl. On the short ride we could see some of the rockets standing tall. The whole day I kept thinking this rocket or that shuttle was in space. I would like to point out that this museum is very different from the National Air and Space Museum near DC. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is focused only on space.
We took some cheesy pics before being allowed into the museum. The museum admission is free for Military families for the rest of this year. The admission price is well worth the experience. There are a lot of fun things that are included in admission such as rock wall, simulation ride, and a free tour in one of the buildings. Bubbles and Duke took advantage of all of the fun things to do. It was also great that Pooh was able to join in on he fun too.
The Space & Rocket Center involved a lot of walking which was good and bad. Good well because I love to walk but bad because little boys hate to do a lot of walking. Baby Kermit was ready to go after lunch but we still had a lot more to explore. I think two days would have been more enjoyable if we had had the time.
It was really kewl to see all of the different space themed things. The kids favorites were the many rockets, the moon rock, and the space suits. There was so much to see. The kids had so much to look at in just a couple hours. It was a great place to visit. I look forward to our next big adventure. I’m really hoping it’s a beach.
