To infinity … and beyond!

Buzz Lightyear launched into space aboard the Shuttle Discovery this afternoon. How can a toy go into space? Lots of training. Aren and Iden watched from their driveway.

This was the view from our driveway. There goes Discovery! Good luck, Buzz!

A perfect day for a launch!
