Yesterday was a blast! Nia is so sweet and her parents are just bursting with pride and joy. For having held two very young babies in a short time, I must say although they are tiny, they are the only thing that seems bigger to me now that I am older. Everything else has "shrunk" (like Chuck E. Cheese's) compared to how I remember it except for babies. Odd, but it makes the fear of holding them cease!
After we left the hospital we went to the viewing area for the transit. We had a superb view of the Transit of Venus through several differnent telescopes, special goggles and with the projecting contraption above. It's so amazing to know how large Venus is considering how small this dot representing the planet looks. That just shows you how large the sun truly is (and how small we are)... it's nearly unfathomable. We will never see anything as huge in our lives, even in the United States where huge reigns. A lot of people showed up at the viewing site we went to and I was glad to see so much interest surrounding this rare event.
Here's a video about it:
