Patriotic Adventures

It may seem like my life revolves around Mission Control lately. And, honestly, I've been putting quite the emphasis on that since I am just so stinking proud. But Chris and I do have lives outside of work - including fun visits to the sites in Houston. 

On Memorial Day we checked out Battleship Texas with Chris's mom, Pam. It was quite muggy, but the rain held off for most of the day. We all really enjoyed walking through the century-old battleship, moving the guns around, and reporting to the bridge ;-) Fun facts: the USS Texas was used in both World Wars, and was the first battleship to launch an aircraft!



Check out the size of that piston!!
A week later we attended our first Houston sporting event - an Astro's game! Chris got the tickets for all the hard work he has been putting in at Boeing lately. Since we are both such big sports fans (ahemmm....sarcasm there), we really just enjoyed eating the terribly delicious stadium food and people watching.
