We went to Birmingham Southern yesterday with a fun group of friends to check out the planetarium. It was great. I went in knowing that the sky was up and came out with a thirst of looking at the night sky to find constellations. The instructor, Ms. Ingram, had the kids make this
star finder thingy and Corin and Silas were bitterly disappointed that last night the stars were covered with clouds. Maybe tonight. It was fun and I love a good field trip with lots of friends.
After we did that, we stuck around Birmingham Southern's pretty campus to take pictures of Missy's brother, his girlfriend , Kelly...and her (Missy's) kids. If you don't know, Missy was my roommate in college and I've known her family since I was eighteen years old. Yep, her parents got onto us for our foolishness just like my parents did. I was terrified of her father when I met him; he looks just like Tommy Lee Jones and has this very serious face. It's a ruse though, he's a big teddy bear- unless, of course, Missy and I were up to no good, then he was all over us. Anyhoo, the first time I met Adam (he's 9 years Missy's junior), he sang Hakuna Matata from the Lion King for three hours in a car ride and I wanted to kill him. He's not nearly as annoying now ;). It IS weird that he's grown up, though; I feel old. They were fun to work with.
