Star Light, Star Bright

One of my most favorite memories of dating Kyle is the nights we spent star gazing and meteor watching. We would leave late at night and drive out to the "country" and lay down and look at the sky. We would hold hands and talk. It was SO nice and one of the things I "miss" about being young and care-free. We can't just up and do that now..cause you know..we have these little creatures we call kids. LOL

However..our little darlings are getting older now and can start leaving them alone. JUST KIDDING!! LOL They are getting older and are showing interest in the night I think before long we could take them on a midnight excursion or two to star gaze.

We used to have a cool telescope and then K let his friends borrow it and somehow we never got it back. I am toying with the idea of getting another one, but want to make sure I buy a good one.

I have been looking online for good info on how to buy a telescope. In doing that, I found this cool thing called a Meade My Sky Personal Video Planetarium. It's an interactive, hand-held, point-shoot-and-identify multimedia guide--so not only can we look at the pretty stars...we can actually KNOW what we are looking at...and LEARN something! Imagine AND educational!!
