Launch in 3-2-1

Because of some storms rolling over us, we were forced to entertain ourselves inside for a few hours. Nothing is better indoors than some raucous warp speed laps around the house. Landon prepares to demonstrate his Boom Boom skills with some masterful positioning of the launching device (aka, coiled rear legs) along with the propulsion engine (the spring loaded front legs) with precision targeting (those wide open eyes that “mostly” identify collision targets to avoid).
