The day before launch each crew member gets to take 1 person to visit the space shuttle with them. (Generally it’s the spouse.) I have to tell you that amidst all the chaos of launch week it was really nice to get to spend some “quieter” time with Ken not to mention that getting “up close and personal” with the space shuttle on the launchpad is always pretty cool!

Piers was willing to do whatever it took to get good shots of us. (He was one the escorts for us families for the week.)
Yes I am most definitely a goofball! But then again many of you already knew that!!
