Thursday Theater: Fireworks

Goddess is taking a break from Thursday Theater theater this week… but I’ll still link back to her cuz it was her idea 😉

Our town has two nights of fireworks! The first night was beautiful; the second night was a little bit chilly.

(2-ish minutes, plus OneTrueMedia wrapper)

A Day at the Carnival

Our town celebrates the 4th of July all week! They have a carnival set up in the high school parking lot and lots of festivities (read: food) on the town common. Burke and Maggie had a wonderful time and enjoyed their very first carnival rides!

Yard With a View

Front Yard

The festivities in town are less than two miles away at the local high school. Therefore, Mike and I put the kids to bed, had some dinner and then stepped out onto our front steps to watch the fireworks. My (cool) camera has a “Fireworks” setting! This is the first time I’ve used it…not *the* best pictures, but the following were taken from our steps last night.

Back Yard

Mike took today off from work (WOO HOO!) and we played in the back yard pretty much all day with the kids. We hit church this morning (it’s just not the same with no one working in the nursery!!) and then came home to the pool and fun in the sun. A good day was had by all *grin*

Fun Food on the 4th

Mike Grilled up some *really* tasty stuff: Steak, ribs, hotdogs, kielbasa, potatoes, peppers, onions, and zucchini. And we made some corn as well. The pan fried version of it all was darn good last night too. On the 4th, we also had watermelon…Burke’s 1st piece was almost as big as him! 🙂 (yes, he had more than one…and then more for breakfast yesterday!!)
