Launching Rockets with Gravity Groms

What, you ask, is Gravity Groms? Only the coolest came in CB! They go mountain biking, hiking, skate boarding – and rocket launching! (Okay, I know I’m leaving out about 10 other things they do – like teaching safety and confidence.) My daughter, Ellie, did it last year and it was the only thing my two girls wanted to do this summer. They are having a blast and it’s been so fun watching their confidence in their abilities soar…..

Back to the rocket launching! I had a little time before my twin newborn shoot to run over to Town Park to witness and shoot some photos while they launched a small rocket – and then the Green Machine. So super cool! It was awesome watching their faces as the rockets zoomed into the air!

But why am I writing about it? Here are too many photos!
