Lights in the sky on the 4th of July

Just got home from watching fireworks with old friends who live here in Missouri, and made some new friends along the way. Here are some shots I took:




And on this, our nation's independence day, I am thankful for many things. Some at the top of my mind today are:
  • My beautiful family.
  • My camera and the cool pictures I can take with it. (I'd seriously marry it, I love it that much.)
  • Fireworks and meeting new friends.
  • Listening to my kids play pretend.
  • Chase demanding that we all stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance (which we did).
  • Water parks to cool down at on a hot, humid day (even though Hannah pointed out just how jiggly my legs are. Thanks, baby. Mama REALLY needed to hear that while wearing a bathing suit in public).
  • Putting together my new scrapbooking room.
  • Fireflies.
  • Good running shoes.
  • Watermelon and ice cream (4th of July staples).
  • Love, home, and freedom.

Happy 4th everyone!

Your pictures are awesome! What kind of camera do you use?
We should all say the Pledge of Allegiance more often--Chase had the right idea. :)

Those pictures are amazing! I have tried to take photos of fireworks but they have never turned out so well. What kind of camera do you have?

Someday...I will have a house with a room for me to use as a scrapbook room. You are a lucky girl!

Sounds like you are having fun and I am so glad!

Thanks - you guys are so nice. I have a Cannon Digital Rebel. I'm still trying to figure it out, but it's fun to play around with it and see what you get. The dream is to eventually know what I'm doing.

Have you moved into your scrapbooking room yet? I'm assuming it will have a little fridge, a tiny microwave and a futon for long weekends!

Oh, how I wish WE were the old friends you went with but I guess I can't demand exclusivity :). Glad you had such a great night. I'll add my request for pictures of the scrapping room!
