It was so cool to see the Endeavor flyover our neighborhood. So exciting for my 8 year old to see. I got some great pictures.

I got a chance to get away from the office for a little while and go watch it. I was out in the Yolo Bypass and I had a great time. I agree, I was surprised how exciting it was (I'm not really into planes and/or space exploration). I thought I was just going for a nice photo-op. But it turned out to be very exciting as well!

It was pretty impressive seeing the throngs of people turned out for the event near the Capitol. There must've been at least 2,500 people out on the west side of the Capitol steps all the way up Capitol Avenue. When the Boeing came around for its second pass I was seriously floored by how close it came to the Capitol itself. It's something I'll never forget.
