NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)

We visited NASA (Houston, TX) before we went on our Carribbean vacation. Aunt Nancy and Uncle Kenneth were so gracious in allowing us to stay with them for 2 nights. Such great hosts! Thanks Again!

Together, the four of us went to NASA - Johnson Space Center where we had a blast. See for yourself.
