The Launch!

Every year at Christmas, we try to buy the kids educational gifts. This Hydrogen Rocket was Dustin's and this weekend was designated as the official launch day. Both kids heard about the Hydrogen molecule...over and over we attempted to figure how to launch it.

Papa explains the chemistry behind the reaction...

Mocha is told to behave or she will have to go and watch from the house....

(This is the first time that I have seen Papa read instructions!...shhh!)

The Rocket...

Back to the drawing board....

Patience wears thin....

Finally! Lift off!!!!

  1. Wow! That is cool! I love the picture of the "patience wearing thin" kids. I hope they were glad they waited. Very good shot of the actual launch, Wendy!

  2. Hi Wendy
    Glad they got the rocket working in the end. Loved the picture of them waiting. Their faces say it all!
