All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Mars and Stars: Overloading Our Celestial Circuits

7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

OC Parks welcomes back NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for a series of educational public programs showcasing various missions to Mars. The second event in the series takes place at Upper Newport Bay.

JPL Solar System Ambassador John Hoot will explain how we communicate with, command, monitor, navigate and return science data from spacecraft over 100 million miles away. While we often marvel at the stunning images from the surface of Mars, Hoot will explain how that information gets here.

There will also be children’s crafts and a star presentation including stargazing with the OC Astronomers. OC Public Libraries will be hosting a space-themed storytime. Scale models of Mars rovers will be on display.
