|Uncle Andy helping the girls with their list|
Once all the lists were completed, we headed down to the dock to light them off.
How it works is you swing the lantern around (carefully) to get a little bit of air in it and then you light the wick at the bottom and wait until it inflates.
Once you begin to feel the lantern "pull" then you are ready to let it fly and you just let go.
It was a really neat and fun family thing to do!
