3...2...1...BLAST OFF!!!!

Joshua and Michael had a fun birthday party on Saturday. It was a Rocket party. Joshua is really lovin' rockets right now and Michael went along with it because he is just that sweet. I am so glad the two of them were able to celebrate together!

We searched for moon rocks and gathered quite a collection!

We played a relay game with the moon rocks. We made the kids use big tongs to collect them into their buckets. It was pretty funny to watch them try to make it work.

Coloring a few rocket pictures. Joshua and Michael love to have pictures printed off the computer and spend many quite moments coloring. Usually they are coloring superheros. Anyway...
The highlight of the party had to be the blasting off of the rocket. Joshua and Michael launched the first one together. They were not sure what was going to happen. As soon as it blasted off they tossed the remote and took off running. It was pretty funny. Michael had no interest in being that close to the action again. We only got the rocket stuck in the tree once, but thanks to Kris and Mark's ability to climb on one another they got it free.

Joshua and Michael had a fun party. Thanks to all for coming and sharing their birthday with them.

What a fun party, it looks like the boys had a great time! Where did you come up with the ideas? That's what I always have trouble with, coming up with ideas.
