Mom and Dad watched the kids for us Thursday evening so Allan and I could go out for a little bit. On the way home, the moon was beautiful! It was just over the horizon huge and a reddish orange color. Adrian said that it looked like Mars.
In the five minutes it took to get home, the moon hid behind some clouds. As the kids got ready for bed, we noticed that the moon was out again. It was not nearly as big or red anymore, but it was still beautiful. Andrea and Mark came out with me to enjoy it some.Â Watching the moon, listening to the Spring Peepers and talking to my kids was a wonderful way to end a good evening.
