For his birthday, Will got a rocket kit. He and Daddy worked together to assemble it and had even taken it for a test launch. Today, Will's friend Zach was over, the weather was beautiful and everyone was finally healthy. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to take everyone to watch the rocket!

The kids watched Rod get the rocket ready

Then he got it set on the launch pad

Everyone counted down,

the big boys pressed the button

and the rocket blasted off!!
(I love Julia covering her ears in the background!)

Then came the kids favorite part--Running to try to catch it!


  1. This is so cool!! Go Will! him and his friend will probably be talking about it until Christmas!!

  2. I thought the exact same thing as I saw Julia covering her ears! Too cute! Was it loud?
