Anyway, it started out like any other walk. We walked up the hill, then down to the Kansas Ocean. Instead of looping around to the meadow where we see the deer, we headed up a steep hill!
|"Oooh, this is so exciting! And steep."|
We kept going up and up and up!
|"Catch your breath, Mom, we still have a ways to go!"|
And up some more!
|"Oh, my word. All of these craters and stuff. I think I know where we are!!!"|
Can you tell by the terrain I'm walking through where we were?!? YES! How many of you guessed: "ON THE MOON"??!?! It was unbelievable! Who'd have thought we could walk all the way to the moon?!?!
|"All these smells are outta this world!"|
Maggie was so right - the smells had us on sensory overload! And for the record, she did sample the surface, and contrary to popular belief, the moon is not made of cheese! No, really. It isn't. Mags said it tastes remarkably similar to dirt and dust, with a smattering of coyote and deer scent. Interesting!
|"This is so cool! We're the first Sibes on the moon!!!"|
"I know! It's so exciting!!!"
We kept going, and before too long, we made another interesting discovery!
|"Cam! Up here! Look! An ocean!"|
"An ocean on the moon!!!"
Can you believe it!?! An ocean! On the moon! I took a moment to take it all in.
|"And we shall call it ..."|
Since we were the first ones to see it, I think we should name it - don't you? But what to call it? I was thinking "Moon Ocean", but ...
|"That's too much like that 'Moon River' that Andy Williams dude sang about! Now c'mon, there's lots more to explore!"|
"Hmm ... you've got a point ..."
Actually, she had a point on both counts! There was still so much to see!
I hope you enjoyed walking on the moon with us! We'll share more tomorrow!
