Today is "Moon Day"

When? July 20th

Moon Day commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969.

Even though I was just a little kid, I remember that day!

I don't remember the actual moon walk but I do remember thinking it must have been something really important because my dad let us stay up late to watch it on t.v.

I remember his reaction more than I remember anything else. He seemed mesmerized and somehow very proud. And very proud to be sharing this with his young daughters... we were the last generation to have been born prior to humans being space- exploring creatures.

You might find this interesting (I did at least!) ... "What It Feels Like … To Walk on the Moon" By Buzz Aldrin, 71, astronaut, as told to Mike Sager... read it here

(photo from my friend - Terri Harper - taken just for my blog!!!! YAY! Beautiful full moon - great shot Terri!)

So... what to do to celebrate Moon Day?

You could watch Apollo 13
You could learn more about how the moon affects us (here)
You could make Outer Space crafts with your kids!
You could walk around in slow motion and pretend you are weightless.
You could eat Space Food Sticks!!! YAY! Who else remembers these??? I didn't realize that you could still buy them!

or you could get a "Man in the Moon" necklace from me!

It's for sale in my Etsy Shop!

ok... shameless plug... I know
but hey... a girl's got to make a living!
