Departure from Huntsville toward Chicago. Got an all day lay over in Chicago because there is only one flght to Chicago from Huntsville.

Up even earlier today - the pain!! Had done most of our packing beforehand but Jordan had one of his infamously well timed blood noses which gave us a minor-ish delay. Breakfast good ol' vegemite biscuits slash scones. We had our final information overload of Space history (today was about the shuttle program) & then got to see how much of this info we'd retained with a Jeopardy type game called 'Space Bowl' ...

After an early dinner we found our rocket launch was cancelled due to a storm coming in so we partied on aka history lesson about Gemini & Apollo missions & then Commercial Space travel.

Galen and I took a day trip to downtown Nashville to visit places like Tootsie's, Ryman Auditorium, Musicians Hall of Fame, ate some great BBQ and walked our shoes off!!! We then went to the Opryland Hotel and took off to the mall for some very good Mexican Food before heading to the Grand Ole Opry to see country stars like Carrie Underwood and Trace Atkins.
