It’s a bird! It’s a plane!

Nope, it’s a rocket. A kid’s rocket that needs lots of adult supervision and NO Russian Olive trees.  They have spikes that can destroy.  You guessed it.  Our first flight sent the rocket into one of the Russian Olives.07-18-11 rocket launch 01Fill the water container.07-18-11 rocket launch 03Pump, pump…07-18-11 rocket launch 06and pump!  (And check the wind direction!)07-18-11 rocket launch 11It’s off!07-18-11 rocket launch 15And over the trailer, into the trees.  Boy was the wind direction wrong!07-18-11 rocket launch 17It had a huge tear down the side (which we did finally fix.  Have not flown it again.)  We decided to try a balloon.  It worked!  Sort of.07-18-11 rocket launch 1907-18-11 rocket launch 20Ready to go!07-18-11 rocket launch 23Blast off.  And up.  But not too far.07-18-11 rocket launch 26Hopefully soon we can try the original again.  When the wind is right.  It was cool.  Oh, we looked for a replacement rocket.  Not luck – yet.
