Fun!

The Obamas were in Florida on Friday to attend NASA's final space shuttle launch.

Unfortunately, the launch was delayed due to a malfunction, but it wasn't a waste of a trip for the First Family.

President Obama, First Lady Michelle, and their daughters Malia and Sasha visited Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, taking a tour of the space shuttle Atlantis with astronaut Janet Kavandi.

Looks very cool from under the landing gear!

Hope the fam had fun!
