How Many Moons Did You See?

Last night’s moon phenomenon seemed to bring out the best in people and it certainly had nothing to do with it being Cinco de Mayo.  We held off on our Cinco de Mayo celebrating until Seis de Mayo and I think it was probably a good call on our part.

Last night we did check out the moon that was supposed to be bigger and brighter than ever.

I also had some friends send me a picture of a full moon, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the same moon I was looking at.  Last I checked, the moon wasn’t hairy.  Who doesn’t like receiving a hairy ass pic text to let you know they’re thinking of you?  I’m keeping that all for myself, though.

Today we headed down to Old Town to check out their Seis de Mayo scene.  Rory got a second try on the ponies.  His first attempt was over Christmas and the little pony shuttered right after he got on it and it scared the shit out of him.

He totally redeemed himself…

We also checked out some of the cars they had on display.

All in all, a great day and I ate my weight in salt water taffy.

  1. James and I looked at the moon too. I really wish I had a decent camera because our view would have made a great photo. Oh well… I may be able to get one soon… then you’ll see a lot more pics on my blog too LOL

    • Yeah, our pictures were horrible. I am in desperate need of a new camera and my husband keeps telling me to hold off for awhile. I would like to think that he got me one for Mother’s Day, but I know that is not the case.

      • Well, bear in mind that most “point and click” cameras aren’t really up to the job… I mean the kind that cost less than $200, are slim and easily fit into your pocket. They’re great for general photography but usually not so good at taking pictures of the Moon because they have such a wide field of view. I’d curious to try one that has a good optical (not digital) zoom – you can one from Sam’s Club that has a zoom of 12x – 14x for about $150. Otherwise, for less than $100 you’re probably looking at about 5x.

        You need to ask Ian Spagnalo LOL His photography is amazing.

      • Yeah, I was going to upgrade to a DSLR, but I’m not in a big hurry because I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to do with it once I get it. Thank God for the internet, though. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to find quite a few hints and tips.
