Stanley has had quite a visit with us in Orlando. Disney World, Sea World, the beach, and now the Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral! The folks at NASA graciously allowed Liam, Stanley, and I to pose for a few photos without paying admission. Stanley could hardly believe his eyes at the size of this mock up of the space shuttle. Brady and Devin saw an even better one with Liam in Washington, DC last year. But at the Astronaut Hall of Fame, you can actually walk inside the shuttle!

Stanley nearly lost his lunch in the G Force Trainer, which spins you around and around just like the astronauts in space. It makes me a little sick just typing that sentence!

This is about as close to space walking as Stanley could get outside the Kennedy Space Center entrance. But as luck will have it, tomorrow night at precisely 7:38 PM a Delta 4 rocket will be launching from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. We’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled for rocket lights in the Eastern skies tomorrow night!

Sadly, this will be Stanley’s last night with us. We’ve had a great time with him, and we can’t wait to hear how Devin’s class liked his Orlando adventures.
