Stargazing

The two biggest boys decided to take advantage of our beautiful weather and have a camp out on the back deck. Ben was so excited that he started claiming that he was sooooooo tired by 6 o'clock that evening just so he could go curl up in the sleeping bag and nearly drove us crazy until it was time.

It was a gorgeous clear night for star gazing and Ben was filled with wonder as he laid there looking up. We saw 3 shooting stars all within 5 minutes.

That really bright star (but blurry because I don't have a tripod) is Jupiter and the red and white dots going across is actually an airplane that flew by. I had my shutter open for 30 seconds so it caught the progression.

I love that Ben finds such joy and pleasure in the natural things. We are hoping to take a family camping trip soon weather permitting. It's been far too long since we've played in the woods.

2 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:

Fun, fun, fun! Love the pictures, we love the outdoors too! Although now it is too cold for us to be camping until May. Have a great week!
