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

Hi everyone! Well...as you can see, mom decided NOT to send me to the meat packing plant and followed advice and put an ugly old blanket over the duvet and part of the down comforter at bedtime last night and there was NO PUKING!

Last night...I got to go to a ROCKET LAUNCH (after mom promised it wasn't a trick so she could blast me straight to the moon!) Holden built a model rocket and was excited to shoot it off. We went up to Holden's school and made the field our launch site. Here I am waiting...

OH...those dudes are Justin (one of Holden's buddies), Holden and Daddy (Kevin).


Here is a close up of Holden and his buddy Justin.

He's a very cool kid and makes mom laugh!


Roger, Houston, this is Launch Director Salinger...final launch sequence check and go-no go...HOLDEN: We're go for launch! DADDY: Roger, we're a go! JUSTIN: We are go for launch! Final launch status is confirmed....Stand by for final ignition....5....4....3....main engine start.....2.....1.....and liftoff of Captain Holden's first mission into space!

NO! I wasn't scared! Come on mom!!!!


Next...Holden had a little plastic rocket that was powered by baking soda and vinegar. It took several attempts (from EACH of us) to make it work, and our car will be smelling "fresh and confident" (hahaha!) for weeks because it kept exploding on us!


Daddy discovered the cool "burn mark" on the launch pad of the big rocket!

Thumbs up to Captain Holden and his crew Justin and Daddy!

Daddy is ready for another rocket mission after a trip to Hobby Lobby for more rocket engines!


Happy Hump Day everyone!

Salinger dude - you are always doing the coolest things! Mom launched rockets with her classes earlier this year but I was never invited. The kids loved the rocket launches so much that they begged her to bring the rockets back to launch again.

Pee-s: You didn't look scared in the video.

Good job, Holden! Just be careful!

Salinger, you were a brave little guy in those videos! I would have peed myself, OR pooped myself... since apparently I do that when I am afraid!

Oh Salinger, you're such a brave pug!! Good thing you were there to supervise the launches. Who knows what might have gone wrong if not for you!!

Wow that was really cool. Thanks for the videos. Fine job, Holden.

We are glad you did not get sent to the meat packing plant, Salinger.
