On a day I had to get some errands done, sans kids, Dan spent the afternoon with them painting a rocket. Yes, the kind that actually blasts off into the sky. This is our second attempt at such a rocket.
The first was given too large of an engine and went so high we could see it come down until Dan found it in the middle of the nearby road - it's cone smashed.
This time we used a much smaller 'engine' and the kids loved seeing it come back down.
The only problem was this time, the chute detached from the rocket and the cone landed in a tree. We eventually got it down, but there are some repairs needed before we can shoot it off again.
Still, it was a fun family outing when I got back.
