To The Moon in Austin TeXaS


I wanted to be a space man. That's what I wanted to be.

On Father's Day, we visited the wonderful LBJ Museum for the first time.
It was Evan's afternoon. He LOVES the space program
and there's a traveling exhibit...
To The Moon: The American Space Program in the 1960's.
...here through July 20th.


a dream. vision. willpower.
competition. cooperation.
problem solving. creative thinking
dedication.



Beat The Russians to the Moon ~ at home!


One of our favorites.


Scout took every photo here...


...except this one. :)



We loved finding these old phone booths.



Is that my space pen? I need that.

Of course we had to visit the museum gift shop.
They always have the coolest things, don't they?
I wish every store was like a museum gift shop.
We snagged this pen for Evan. Now I want one.



I must admit what I know about LBJ can be
safely stored on the head of a pin.
And formerly never inclined to give it much thought.
Until I cast my eyes upon this revelation.
The man loved his beagles.
I see research in my future.


Another adventure for the
wandering Wilkinson family.
We will return many times
and look forward to it.
{and it's FREE 364 days a year. shhhhh}

I hope every wonderful father had a wonderful Sunday.

What a lovely way to spend the day!! We would enjoy this I'm sure. Danny and I toured the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH for a couple of hours and didn't get to spend enough time to really explore like we wanted to. I don't like to fly, but I love air craft and all types.

I love space stuff! Went to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. DH has a couple of pens from there - his favorite ones.

What a great trip and blogpost!

Loved all of the photos and being able to see your
family is a treat. You had a great time that is the
best. I love space things too. I went to the air and
space museum in DC very nice.

Great day! I used to have a space pen. Don't you know LBJ lifted those beagles up by their ears?
