Soaring into the Sky

What are two things that Parks truly enjoys?

Art and launching things into the air.

Well, today-on his birthday, he got to do both.  The kids met a man while we were at the LEAF festival who made an air rocket launcher.  Tom Heck, the rocket man, shared his plans with many of the families who enjoyed the rockets.  Nick was one of those who received the plans.  He went to work on the plans this weekend.

Today we got to test the launcher out.  First, the kids designed their rockets.  Then they launched them into the trees.

Check out Tom’s video from the festival to see the amazing heights these rockets fly to.  Ours went over our trees and way higher than our house.  I see a lot more rockets in our future!
