It's not a good day unless you get to go to space

Driving with the kids in the car on school holiday. I don't have to go into work. The entire day is ours.

Me: What do you want to do today, guys? We can do whatever we want!
Sevy: Not WHATEVER we want.
Me: No, you're right.
Sevy: We can't blow up Alaska.
Me: No. But we wouldn't want to do that... why would we want to do that?
Caden. Can we go to space?
Me: No... we can't go to space.
Sevilla: Of course we can't go to space!
Caden: Why can't we go to space??
Me: (stalling, trying to think creatively) Well... we just can't.
Caden (throwing hands up in despair): Mom NEVER lets us go to space!
