Meteorite Showers

We're so goofy . . . for 2 nights in a row, we have gotten up with Vicki while she's visiting from New Mexico in the early morning to see the meteorites. The first night, Sunday night, was really worth losing the sleep over. Vicki had said she would definitely get up to use the bathroom through the night and would get us all up then. As it turned out, I ended up having to potty first, so I woke everybody up and here we go out on the patio. It didn't take long to figure out we definitely needed some pillows - that concrete is HARD! LOL! Anyway, the first night, we saw lots . . . probably between 20-25 over the course of an hour (we had no idea we were out there that long: time flies when you're having fun I guess).

But last night, I only saw 3 . . . the kids and Vicki saw around 5. Not NEARLY as active as the night before and definitely not worth getting up for, but it was fun! It's been a long time since I've done anything that crazy and off the wall! I'm paying for it today, though . . . very very sleepy!

Maybe you should get a remote for your camera, so you can be in the picture too??
