fourth.


We called up our friends and invited them over for
homemade ice cream and to watch the fireworks
from our yard. That evening our yard was filled
with people. We had purchased the sparklers.
We made lemonade. The ice cream maker was
churning on the porch. Little children were
running around the yard, chasing each other.
Laugher was heard from every point of the yard.
It was wonderful.

Earlier that day I had researched how to take
pictures of fireworks so I would be prepared.
As the dusk slowly set in and darkness fell,
we waited for the sound of the first firework.
Soon color and light lit up the sky. We sat
"ooo"ing and "ahhh"ing as the grass tickled
our toes.

It was a perfect way to spend the fourth.

  2. Love your pictures! My favorite is the one with the sparklers, but for some reason I always love sparklers captured in photos. :-)
