Rocket Ship

The girls have a new game. It is immensely fun to watch. They play rocket ship (or boat, but usually rocket ship) by spreading out a blanket on the floor (1-2-3-4-5 Spread!) and then jumping on the blanket and pulling some up over their laps (strapped in to be safe!) and then placing pants upon their heads (Helmets on! so we can be safe!) They usually zoom off to rescue their stuffed animals or an obliging grandparent. Sometimes there is mutiny onboard as one of the rescuers tries to steal more than their share of blanket for a pretend nap (This is not a sleeping boat Ali!)
