Story Time Under the Stars

We recently went to the Vanderbilt Planetarium for a Story Time Under the Stars program.  IMG_7670This was Emily’s first trip to the Planetarium and although I don’t think she really understood what we were going to be seeing she was so excited about being able to wear her pajamas out and listen to stories. 

IMG_7674The program began with our educator telling us a little about the dome and the star projector.  Then she showed us some constellations.  My favorite part was seeing how many stars there are when there is no light pollution.  It reminded me of camping upstate when I was little! IMG_7671

I was not sure how Juliette was going to like it and even thought about not bringing her at all.  I am so glad I finally decided to give her a chance because she LOVED it!
