Getting ready for the 'Big Launch'

We had the opportunity to witness the shuttle launch of the Endeavor..and were very excited!
We left our house in Florida at midnight and got to the launch site around 2:00AM. We sat and watched the beautiful sunrise.



And then at 8:39AM the ignition began...





The magnificent blast off that literally brought tears to my eyes!







The ground began to shake and about a minute later..the sound was deafening!









And now the long ride home....what a thrill to be able to witness this shuttle history.
