Eyes to the Sky

 

Wait, what’s that in the sky?DSC_3497

Hey, there’s April.  What in the world are you pointing at?DSC_3520

Every year, the kids from our church meet at a park with their families to shoot off rockets that they made.

We all eat together and have fun visiting and hanging out.DSC_3421

Look, the Munchkins are there.  And MrMama!  He’s holding a stick, not a rocket.  Wishful thinking, MrMama.  Miss Munchkin is holding a gluten-free hot dog bun.  That won’t fly very far either, Dear.

It’s just good, clean fun and something the kids look forward to throughout the year.

Whew! You had me worried for a minute. Round these parts when one says 'eyes to the sky' it means a tornado is a comin'. Glad this time it meant fun times with your family and friends!

What a fun tradition! How long has this been going on? And is there some religious significance? Or the pastor just likes rockets? ;)

Dawn, it IS getting to be that time of year around here (tornado season). I'll take a potluck picnic party over one of those anyday!

Nichole, it's been going on as long as I can remember. I have no idea As far as I know, there is no deep-rooted theology underlying this event; just fun and fellowship. :)
