Road Trip Endeavour-Day 5-Kennedy Space Center

So, it's day 5 of "Road Trip Endeavour".  We had so much fun just getting to Florida, it feels like we are starting a whole new vacation.  It will be nice to have a beach front home base for a while. Anyway, the whole reason we decided to take this vacation (explained here) was to get to Kennedy Space Center to see the Endeavour launch and spend maximum time at the space center checking everything out.  We spent two solid days there and still didn't see everything.  That could have something to do with the fact that we were with two four year olds and big baby.  We roll a little slower than most.  Our first day here we took the bus tour--you get out a few times to explore different things at you're own pace, then hop back on a bus.  We figured it would be too busy to do it on launch day, so we better do that first.
