I love that song!
Anyway, last night there was a full lunar eclipse. I knew about it, but didn't plan on getting up in the middle of the night to see it. That's what the internet is for I figured! Well, nature called at 3:15am so I figured as long as I was up I'd go check it out. It was really cool. So I decided to go wake Sam so he could see it as well. We sat on the front steps for awhile watching it. Here is one of the first pictures I took:
As amazing as the eclipse was, guess what was even more amazing? I think my kids have a built in alarm that says "mom and dad have left the building!" because pretty soon Parker joined us on the steps. A few minutes later, here comes Carson. Here it is, 3:30am and all four of us were outside looking at the moon. So strange!
Here is another shot around 3:45am. It was cool because the moon had a reddish glow:
Here is what the moon looked like around 4:00am. This was as long as I made it. I was cold and ready to go back to bed!
Unfortunately for Sam, he was never able to go back to sleep so he went to work instead! He is crazy like that. :)
On an unrelated story:
Carson has to hide one of his cars from Parker because Parker always cries until he gets to hold it. For some reason, Carson started using the freezer as his hiding place--again, it makes perfect sense to Carson!
Sam had the great idea to freeze the car in water. Today Carson came home from school and opened the freezer to play with the car. He was so confused at first then he just laughed his guts out! Here are some pics of it:
