Last Night's Supermoon

Here is a picture that I took of last night's supermoon just as it was getting dark outside.  It was the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.  Grace, Jack and Eve knew that the "supermoon" was coming since we had been talking about it all week.  They were SO excited when I surprised them last night by going into their rooms (after they had been tucked in and gone to bed!) to let them know that they could go outside to see this beautiful site.

Last night's supermoon:  14% bigger, over 30% brighter and approximately 15,000 miles closer to Earth

What a sensational image, Rebecca! Dad (our family moon~lover!) is over-the-moon about this photo!!

The children will never-ever forget that you took them outdoors to experience this. The very best moments of growing up are the least expected ones. We *love love love* your family!

Love, Maddy and Poppy

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
