The highly anticipated eclipse was a big deal at our house. We had Luke's grandma fly out to see it, as well as my grandpa and grandma. 

The night before the eclipse, we threw an impromptu eclipse party with the family and the neighbors. 

On the day of the eclipse, Luke, Grandma & Jack left at 4am to drive to Wyoming where they would experience the 100% eclipse. The girls and I stayed behind to see the measly 96% eclipse. We met up with some friends and went to the University for the event

We expected it to get dark, but it only got a little dusky. Meanwhile, Luke, Jack and Grandma had made it to Glendo, Wyoming and were able to see the full eclipse. One of Luke's coworkers and his son joined them on the journey. They ended up setting up camp at a park where the kids could play.

The crescent shadows from the ellipse were amazing
I guess it did get dark for a full 2 minutes where they were. Luke said it was awesome! But then again it took them over 9 hours to get home (should have been a 2 hour drive with no traffic).
