Last night, around 11pm, we all went outside to watch the annual Perseids meteor shower. The kids took blankets and laid down on the driveway. My hubby and Sylvia got tired of it very fast, so went back inside, the others spent some more time looking for them. We saw some, but not as many as had been predicted. It didn't help that there were a few clouds, although not enough to obscure everything.

We moved indoors for a while, hoping there would be more when we came back outside. This time, I took a blanket too, so that I could fall asleep outside with the kids, if things worked out that way.

We again, saw a few, not as many as hoped. But one of them was really spectacular, going through almost the whole sky, with impressive light effect and staying for a few seconds at least. So that made worth all the time we were spending outside.

I fell asleep on our driveway, with the kids still outside. Woke up to a cloudy sky. Fell asleep again. Woke up a few hours later to rain. We moved inside, and spent the rest of the night indoors ^^
