3, 2, 1 . . . Blast Off!

Miles and Jonas got rockets from the Easter Bunny this year.  They put them together (well we thought Miles had finished, but today at launch-time we realized Miles had a step left to do) and have been waiting for a good day to go out and launch them.  Monday was horrible and windy.  Tuesday was blizzardy.  Wednesday wasn't much better and we had no time anyways.

That brings us to today, Thursday.  Did we have the time?  Heck no.  But could I stand another day living with a boy-who-couldn't-fly-his-rocket (aka Moanas Jonas)?  Heck no.  So we squeezed it in and after a few times of nothing happening, Jonas' rocket finally blasted.  It was fun!  Then he did it again and it was fun again!  But the parachute didn't open because the bottom had blasted off.  So we didn't get to blast it a third time.  But Jonas can fix his rocket and do it again another time.

Finally, Jonas was satisfied!  It was really fun watching it blast off.

3, 2, 1 . . . Blast off!
