Jupiter

Lately Zack has been very interested in comets and planets. Carrie picked up a bunch of books at the library and Zack keeps asking for them. I think his favorite is about black holes. He likes to remind me that if we went to a black hole it would be a one way trip :)
Tonight when I was reading books to Zack he pointed to a planet in the solar system. “How lives there? Does anybody live there?”. After that he pointed to a planet and said we should go there. “We should go to Jupiter” (and it was Jupiter!). He had it all worked out. I told him that we would need a spaceship. To which he replied “Maybe an astronaut will let us borrow one?”. So I told him that it would take years to get there. “We could take pillows. And we could sleep through the night, and when we wake up we would be there”.

Fun!
