i didn't know if it would be a flop or not, but i figured since it's summer and we are pretty lazy during the days, we could afford a half hour of awake time in the middle of the night to watch the meteor shower tonight.
and oh. my. goodness.
it was so worth it!
i set my alarm for 2 am. went outside and laid out 2 big blankets in the back yard.
came back inside and got the 2 big kids up.
they carried out their pillows and blankets and we settled in.
10 shooting stars.
they were in awe...and so was i!
i LOVE stuff like this. it was incredible.
we were really starting to get eaten alive when i said, "ok...let's see if we can hold out for just ONE MORE."
not 30 seconds passed and we all 3 squealed at the same time...it was HUGE. and bright and a perfect way to end our 30 minutes.
and i kid you not when i say i teared up...and hugged them both so hard.
hope they remember it forever.
now i'm going to try and sleep again....or maybe not. maybe i'll go watch so more.
