What are you up to this weekend? We’re heading to our friend’s house in the suburbs. They’ll be out of town this weekend, so they’re letting us escape from our tiny apartment and spread out at their house—with a backyard! We’re taking these balloon rockets (which actually shoot above trees) and (overzealously) ordered a kiddie pool. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
