The Happiness Project : Week 3

We went to a Family Planetarium Day 
over the weekend.

It was a rainy afternoon,
the perfect kind of day for gazing at pretend stars.

The kids thought that it was the coolest thing ever.
when lights dimmed and the stars popped
up on the ceiling above them.

Koen gasped a little bit
when they projected The Milky Way on the screen.
The sense of wonder that a 
3 year old possesses is very inspiring.

That is, 
until they start shouting things like
"I'm bored, these are stupid stars!"
while a nice lady is trying to
give a presentation.

The science project couldn't come fast enough.
My kids were pretty stoked to poke the constellations 
onto black construction paper.

We even took some stars home with us.

Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness for a whole year?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.
Then, steal my button and include it in your post.
Don't forget to link up to Mr. Linky.
