We all watched the parts of the fireworks show going on at the high school that we could see from our backyard. Our sweet boy gave us a play by play of the action, wee girl sat atop her Dad's shoulders, and the cat kept looking at us like we were her own personal late night kitty TV show.
I had no idea that there was a fireworks setting on my camera, until last night. Ya learn something new everyday, right?! Holding my camera up high for the whole show led to quite shaky pictures!
But, ya know what?! There's something that I kind of like about all these squiggly firework lines. So, I'm okay with all the wiggles. :>
Even with the squiggles and wiggles, I loved seeing all the colors and pops and the fantastic light show that it was!
And the finale did not disappoint the gasping, ooo'ing, ahhhh'ing, clapping kidlets! Before even the standard, "Good morning" could escape wee girl's lips, she came to me wide eyed, still quivering, saying, "Mom! I loved the fireworks and the boom-boom-ba-boom-da-boom!!!"
Next year, I intend on using the cute 7 Section Tripod 41IN Eco Trends E-grn my Mom gave me for Mother's Day to see what happens when my arm isn't shaking! Isn't it cute??!! Mine came in Pink! :>
Firework excitement continues today as the kidlets are both busy drawing and coloring their pictures. Wee girl's pic is all about the fireworks and my sweet boy has drawn a pic of a firework in the sky being watched by his favorite animal, a cat.
I hope your weekend was as good as ours was! We will be finishing up Extended School Year this week and seeing what the rest of summer will hold for us. What's in store for you this month??
