It was awsome. I was going to go sit out there with my chair and blanket with or without anyone else. I wanted the kids and Jeff to go, but wasn't going to beg them to. Well, I didn't have to....the kids went with me . Jeff insisted that it was just too cold!
We too our chair and heavy sleeping bags/blankets, kicked our shoes off, and settled in out there. My neighbor and her friend walked over to join us. We stayed out there for about 1 1/2 hours. The kids counted over 20 "shooting stars". The were beautiful. Jeff and I saw on while in the car on the way to get the children from his parent's (He and I went to our Sunday School social). The one we saw was SO BIG...just shooing straight across the sky. We saw a couple of bigger ones last night with the kids as well as LOTS of smaller activitiy. I was so happy when I knew that they had each seen at least one. They are ended up seeing way more. We got so cold out there when the dew started rising and the wink kicked up, but it was still so hard to make ourselves come in. I'm so glad that I experienced that with them...okay, for myself too . I am a Solar System nut!
Oh, and I wanted to share. We all cooked chili for the Sunday School social that I told you that Jeff and I went to. Wellllllllllllll..............my chili won 2nd place in the judging...woo hoo . I didn't even know they were judging them, so that was fun.
I hope everyone has a great day today. We have NOWHERE to go...NOTHING to have to do. What a day!!!

The great thing is that we didn't even have to drag the telescope out there. It was stuff you could see without it.
We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, clear night. I felt like I was obseverving at an indoor planatarium...it was so clear. We could easily see the different constellations and everything...just amazing.
