Last month, Ben and I went to Discovery Day - the event to celebrate the arrival of the Shuttle Discovery at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (the one out in Virginia). It was pretty neat. I'm glad we went.

The shuttle arrived in the morning to marching band music and the waving of tiny american flags. I learned that when the shuttle re-enters earth's atmosphere, there is a double sonic boom. Isn't that cool?

I like how Discovery shows she was definitely in and out of the atmosphere. Look at all those burnt tiles! The Enterprise, which has never gone into space, is totally pristine.

After the shuttle arrived and the papers were signed, we headed indoors to the museum where a ton of special exhibits were on display. We watched a show in a tiny pop-up planetarium, stared at the sun with special telescopes, and viewed a 3-d Mars panorama. We also watched an imax movie about the shuttle program, which was interesting but sad when you think about how the program is officially over.

I took a ton of pictures, but I need to finish going through them. They shall be up fairly soon!
There's a clip from season 2 of MLP!

After I watched it, I felt incredibly annoyed with Discord. But I couldn't place why. Then ben pointed it out last night.

The puppy is slowly getting smarter! Yay! She doesn't have accidents nearly as often. And isn't nearly as bitey. Though she does still pee and bite and awful lot....

Oh! And last night I told her it was bed time and she went into her cage without any trouble at all! I was so proud of her!

Noname is slowly warming up to her too. Last night, they cuddled in the same bed for nearly two minutes! It was awesome.

Speaking of awesome, Ben knew I have been pretty stressed out lately, so he helped me make dinner last night. Then we watched a movie together. Although he hates old movies, he watched the 1959 version of Journey to the Center of the Earth. I have extremely fond memories of it as a child. It was as good as I remembered. Plus, it has a duck!

Also, yesterday I bought TMBG's newest album: Join Us. I think the best song on it is Can't Keep Johnny Down.
I am back from my vacation. Actually, been back since saturday night. But I have been very sore and tired. I vacation very hard. It was fun though.

Yesterday ben and I went to see How to Train Your Dragon. It was good. I was surprised, since it was dreamworks, but they actually did a really good job this time. I'd recommend seeing it at some point.

Today I am working half day from home. When not working, I'm going to be uploading pictures from my vacation so I can make a proper vacation post. I have 700+ pictures to work through, so this might take me a couple days.... Maybe I will break it up into smaller posts to maintain my sanity.

Until then, entertain yourself with this:
