Do you Remember Model Rockets??

If you ask my beloved husband this question, he would most definitely say, "YES!". He loved model rockets as a kid. He built and launched many, including one with a camera inside to capture photos on the way down! Cool, huh?

Well...Glenn thought for Jon's 8th birthday it was time to show him the rocket ropes, along with Junior. So...Glenn bought a kit with two rockets and all of the engines he needed, etc. Jonathan was super excited! Junior, too! Although neither of them knew much about rockets, they were sure this time with Dad was going to be so much fun! This Mama agrees! They set about over several evenings to build and paint the rockets and then we were ready for the big launch!

It was so much fun! See for yourself! 10-9--8--7--6--5--4--3--2--1--Blast off!!!

Junior heads off to retrieve the rocket!

Even Nicole had a great time!

Everyone took turns with the controls!
