Here is a picture of my rocketeers. I love this picture of Alan and the boys, they all look so darn cute. This week Alan thought it would be a good idea to do a project with the boys. He bought a rocket and the boys were so excited. He put it together (the boys really weren't much help) and was finally ready to go.
Here is the rocket right before lift-off.
Here are the boys watching Daddy get the rocket ready.
The boys were so enthralled with the whole thing. We had a bit of a failure at first, but we eventually were successful. It went up very high, Alan was excited, the boys didn't really know what had happened. We watched it land in a neighborhood, which we were a little bummed about but we eventually found the rocket in someones backyard. Next time we will launch it from a different place so it won't land in the neighborhood. It was a lot of fun and Samuel kept asking us to go do it again for the rest of the night, so I guess it was a hit.
