To the Moon and Back

Saturday afternoon we went down to the Heinz History Center to see the Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission  Exhibit with the actual capsule from Apollo 11 and a piece of the moon.  Charlie and Michael had fun trying to use the pincers to collect “moon rocks” and they got to experience what it was like inside the capsule. The amount of interactive parts in the exhibit were much appreciated and enthusiastically enjoyed. There were books you could write your memories in about where you were when the men landed on the moon, fifty years ago.

In a week’s time I hosted Charlie and Laura and then Michael,Jack and Maura.

The streetcar parked in the Heinz History Center lobby was a big hit with all the grandchildren

They’ve Got It Covered

They’ve got it covered….with Heinz History admission stickers. Wonder who peeled off the first one and stuck it on the pole?

By the way, Charlie opted to keep his sticker on his shirt. He did not add it to the collection.
