Welcome to Cape Kennedy Space Travelers! 

DAYONELAUNCH

Yeah....I look way cool right?????

Hi Friends!!!!!   Please step into the boarding tunnel – I know you can’t ALL fit

into this small area but do the best you can and come on in. 

I’m heading to the Control Room!

“Spaceship Ralph is fueled up and ready to go when we are.”

CALLING MISSION CONTROL

“Sammy to Mission Control……..We’re boarding now….please stand by for BLASTOFF”

DAYONESPACESTATIONLUNCH

Go ahead and begin exiting the ship and into the Space Shuttle – I’ll be with you in a few minutes!

DAYONESPACESTATIONLUNCH2

A few of our travelers want their bags – thanks for the help you all – I’ll go into the dining hall to make sure everything is ready! 

DAYONESPACESTATIONLUNCH3

Wow…….some spread!    Come on in everybody, help yourselves to the great food, take a bit of a break, then meet me

back in the entryway where we’ll once again get aboard Ralph for the rest of our trip to the Moon!

DAYONESPACESTATIONLUNCH4

The Stardust Hotel Welcomes You!

The Stardust Hotel Welcomes You!

When the shuttle arrives, please assemble in the reception area and we’ll get our room keys.  I know you’re all as tired as I am so let’s call it a night ! 

I hope you’ve had a great day– I sure have.   I’m so happy all of you came on this trip……. 🙂 🙂 🙂

DAYONEHOTELCHECKIN

SO WE SAY GOODNIGHT TO OUR INTREPID BAND OF SPACE CADETS AS THEY SNUGGLE UP IN THEIR ROOMS AND GATHER THEIR ENERGY FOR DAY TWO OF THE TRIP!

A Note From Chaperone #1 “Mom“…….there was no way to get everyone into every photo as you can imagine…..there are some of you who won’t appear in ANY photos and some in more than one…..it was just too much to try and keep track of…..so please don’t be disappointed if you don’t see yourselves!  Just relax and have fun……there are two more days of MOON to go!!
