Alabama or Bust!

This past weekend Craig and I traveled to Huntsville, Alabama to visit with our friends Jared and Melanie. Here are the highlights...

Jared and Melanie took us on a tour of NASA to show us where they work.


NASA's so high tech that they even have one of those little chairs to take people up and down the stairs... how fun!

Later we went to the US Space and Rocket Center... home of Space Camp! I went to Space Camp when I was in 8th grade, but this was Craig's first time. Since we were accompanied by two NASA employees we were able to get in for free... one of the perks of being friends with a couple of rocket scientists.



That night we all went to the Big Spring Jam. This three day concert features over 60 bands on five different stages downtown. We had a lot of fun. The hilight of the evening was seeing George Clinton & the Parliament Funkadelics... Jared is a BIG FAN! By far, the best part of the night was watching the older fans dance... it was quite amusing! We also walked around and listened to Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Brian Jack & the Zydeco Gamblers, and other bands on some of the other stages. All in all the weekend was a lot of fun... We will DEFINITELY have to visit again some time!

craig sort of recognizes the name... he can't put a face with it, but he's fairly sure he knows who that is.
