Rockets! Who Knew??

We had procrastinated and now it was time to face the music. G & G Cooper bought every in the family a rocket with Stacey's help. The idea was to make them and go out together and launch them during the holidays. We got busy and didn't get around to building them until the day before the big launch party. You should have heard the grumbling. They were a little more complicated than we anticipated and we had left them to the last minute so we were under the gun.
We had done some when our kids were little but it had been a long time since we'd done it. 
So we were a little sketchy on the details and the instructions left a little to be desired.
 Well the big day finally came and ready or not we hit the desert. Who knew it was going to be so fun.

 Our champion rocket retrievers! Bear and Josh were there too so that made it extra fun for the boys.
 
 
 Just a few of the amazing rockets we launched that day.
 
 
 We had hot chocolate and chili and hot dogs while we were out there. Oh and s'mores, can't forget those!

I have to say when it was all said and done we had a BLAST!!
Sadly this was the last of the festivities of Christmas. Hayden & Megan went home that evening and Jeff & Rachel flew home the every next day. 
:(
It was so sad to see everyone go home because we feel like we had an amazing time together. 
We have such a great family!!
