Fireworks

Note to self:
By this time next year, get a way better photo shooting rig than you currently have.

For the first time in 10 years, the city counsel decided to not cheap out on fireworks this year and ride along with the ball park. They had a real, honest-to-goodness fireworks show. Complete with a pretty kick ass grand finale and everything!

The lad and I jumped in the MINI just as they were starting and motored up to the top of the hill in front of our house. Pulled in right behind the across the street neighbors (no, not the lass, next to her) and watched. Big ones, littles ones, fireworks that looked like Mickey Mouse, fireworks that went boom. It was fun.

I only wished I would have taken my camera to try to snap off some shots. The way the fireworks were reflecting off the lake was pretty cool. Oh yea, and the echo’s off of the mountains was totally awesome!

Ok, long weekend over. Guess it’s time to go back to work eh? Man, what a drag…

  1. I think long holiday weekends are an insects version of a buffet. Everyone’s cookin out on the grill… You’d think I’ve been to enough of these cookouts to know that wearing perfume or lotion would not be in my best interest… I have insect bites on 3 of my fingers, the palm of my hand, 2 on my elbow… ?! how yummy can that be to an insect?! And of’course my all time favorite spot for a good itchy bite… my toe… Woohoo! Wearin heels at the office is fun today! hehehe Just what I get for bein sweet I guess! 😉 Lesson learned: OFF bug spray/lotion, use it!

  2. Your fireworks were way more awesome than ours. But you’ve got a lake and mountains and a MINI. Also, I managed to take no pictures yesterday.
