Afternoon Delight

Joey has been working so hard on his scouting that he's earned enough merit badges to receive his "Life" rank in June. He recently completed "Space Exploration," one of the requirements of which was to build and then launch his own model rocket. He did this completely by himself (no surprise there if you know Joey's mechanical skills...or if you know mine) and launched the rocket with the help of his merit badge counselor a few weeks ago. Below are pictures from that experience as well as a video of his 2nd launch. You can see the beautiful Wasatch Mountain range in the background.
