Well, we were so grateful to get to see Kirk, but the rest of the weekend did not really go as planned. We did head for the Houston Space Center on Saturday and the boys had a great time, but by that evening both boys were sick! The last thing we decided to do at the Space Center was ride a tram into NASA to take a tour. NASA is a bunch of grey buildings with numbers on them and as we drove by they told us what was in them.... not too exciting for a 6 year old. They did let us in one building where astronauts train before going to the space center, so that was pretty cool, but because it was on a weekend, there was no one in there working. Once that tour was over we went outside to get back on the tram and a thunderstorm came. Our seats were soaked and we had no choice but to sit in them. We huddled to the middle of the tram try and stay dry while going back to the Space Center. Once there, we got out and it looked like we had peed our pants:) we decided it was time to leave. Like I said, that evening both boys were sick. The Children's Museum of Houston is supposed to be a pretty amazing place and that was on the agenda for Sunday. Harrison woke up Sunday morning throwing up, so needless to say, we didn't make it.
So after our trip to Galveston being canceled and the Children's museum being canceled, it was kind of a disappointing weekend, but getting to see Kirk and spending time with him is what it was all about anyway. I decided to head home with the boys just after lunch on Sunday instead of waiting til after dinner which was originally planned. I am SO glad I did because about an hour after I got home, I started feeling the fever chills and I progressively got worse through the night. So so glad I did not have to drive home alone with both boys feeling sick. Here are some pics of the space center. I promised Harrison we would head to the children's museum and the beach on our next visit to daddy in Houston.
BTW - my greatest trick learned this weekend was going to a public bathroom and taking care of business all while holding a 14 month old (because my sweet baby boy refuses to learn to walk).... think about it.... this was quite tricky:)

It was the "Force of July" weekend. Most of what we did was the Star Wars Exhibits they had going
