In Case You Missed It

Some of you had to work yesterday, or simply chose to stay away from the festivities, so I thought I'd share some festive moments trapped forever by my camera.

Our small town fireworks display once again, did not disappoint. Just the right length, with just the right amount of drama. Two sweet kiddos snuggled up next to me, surrounded by other family members, it was yet another night to stow away in our memory banks.
On our drive to town, the youngest voice piped up from the back seat, "I love this time of da season... because its da time of da season for fireworks!" And later, as we drove home, shortly before nodding to sleep in her booster seat, "Mama, when do we get to see da fireworks again?"

Too bad we only celebrate this way once a year. I think maybe we need to adopt some Chinese traditions and light up the sky any chance we get.

We only got to see the fireworks on TV this year. Your photographs are awesome!

We had fun remembering when our girls were little and sharing the 4th with them. Wonderful memories!
