Spring Break in Houston

Somehow our photos posted out of order, but we took a short spring break getaway to Houston and explored some new places and old favorites.  Corinne's astronaut dreams were a little derailed after she saw the space toilets at Space Center Houston...
She had really just woken up from a nap...she perked up later and enjoyed her visit...

The flight crew...
I think it was time for another nap for all of them by the time we did the tram tour that afternoon...
Walking on "Mars"...
We had a fabulous day at the Museum of Natural Science exploring their Mummies of the World exhibit.  I have always been fascinated by mummies, and Stella has recently grown interested, so this was really one of our main attractions for the trip.  I think all the good photos must have ended up on Damon's phone, so I may have to go back and add some later.  In the mean time, here is Corinne outside of the museum...
One of our favorite stops in Houston where we could literally spend days is the Children's Museum.  Corinne took some time to make a few phone calls while we were there...

Everyone was fascinated by this challenge.  We spent at least 30 minutes here...
Three monkeys on a wall...Stella would be up there too were it not for the pink cast on her arm in the bottom corner of the photo.  And Corinne had her access denied because she was too little...
Did I mention that Damon let the three younger ones paint their faces while I helped Stella complete a secret spy mission?  Corinne's face tattoo earned her a ride in the back of the cop car.  Hopefully this is not a preview of things to come in her future...
This big boy attended his first major league game on the trip!  Well, all the children did, actually, but it seems more significant for the man-child...

We let them rock their face paint to the Astros game...
For the record, the game was the Astros vs. the Angels, and the Astros lost.  I was sad about that until Madeline told me that her stepdad played for the Angels, and then I felt much better...
