Shooting rockets

Posted: August 12, 2011 in Being Silly with Mom and Dad, Weekend Activities

Z and his daddy have been building rockets. They really had a great time together working on this project. They went to shoot off rockets a few days before taking me along with them. During that launch they lost one rocket but recovered it a day later.  Apparently they shoot really high and far! Well I went with them on July 28, 2011 and they weren’t kidding! They shot so high in the air you lost track of them. When the parachute opened you could see it but only as it drifted so far away you couldn’t get to it fast enough. End result losing both rockets. After scouring the neighborhood we found lying in the street about 2 blocks away but the other one was found in the middle of the median between two streets a half mile away. HOLY COW that thing traveled far! So they both have been found and we just need more engines to try shooting them again. Good times!
