Jacob's Review:
   It was just like outer space! I saw astronauts and watched movies and there were cockroaches in the one movie, it was gross! But we took a tour and we MET an astronaut! I'm going to be an astronaut! The Kids Space Place was awesome! And I was tall enough to do everything.

Aunt Layla's Notes:
   We had a magical day. Everyone has dreamed of being an astronaut at least once, and at the NASA space center, when we took the tour, we did get to see them working. It was a busy day for us. We took the tour, saw a movie in the "Blast Off Theater", and watched the special diving exhibit. We had lunch at one of the fun little diners and watched Jacob play at Kids Space Place. We did some of the exhibits with him. All three of us had a blast.

  I think the tour was my very favorite. You get to ride the trams and go into the actual space station. We saw them doing some work. It made you feel like somehow, you were a part of it. That sounds a little cheesy; but it's amazing, like one of your childhood dreams coming true, just for a moment.

  The price of admission was so reasonable when you think about how many activities the price covers. It is much less than the average amusement park. If we lived more locally to Houston, we would absolutely buy an annual pass. It's only just a couple of dollars more than the cost of a single day.
