We had a balloon rocket race set up from our roof down to the pool fence (which taught the kids that not all experiments work the way we think they are going to) and then after that we got together for our very last experiment. This was going to completely amaze, inspire, and impress!
They were ready ;)
Kate was keeping her distance.
Time to introduce the first graders to the MENTO experiment
Attempt #1 was pretty impressive.
But we can do better than that, right, dad?
So we did another one.
My FAVORITE shot of the entire evening. This, by far, took everyone by surprise! (Well....maybe everyone except Luke who totally missed it)
Attempt #2? Total Success.
Happy 7th Birthday, Jake!!! We all love you so very much.
And with that, the parents began to show :)
I think it turned out to be a lot of fun. I know we all slept REALLY well that night :)
