More Fireworks

This weekend we were invited to a lot of different events, so we had to pick and choose.  We spent a lot of time with Aunts, Uncles, Parents, Cousins, and new family members.  We shared the stories of our family, laughed, remembered those who are no longer with us, and played with those who have just begun their journey.  It was so much fun!

Some neighbors also invited us to their annual party.  We saw neighbors, and celebrated with more fireworks.

The celebration began with sparklers for the kids.  I tried to play with the sparklers, but I was told I needed to be more responsible.  I stuck to my camera.

After the sparklers the fireworks began. This one looks like it was sponsored by Nike.

Happy birthday USA.  Remember your diverse roots, learn from your mistakes, be humble in your accomplishments, and move toward a better world for all.

Wow! I love the pictures today, your fireworks shots are so clear!

And I'm spending my summer in Egypt this year, so no fireworks for me. But one tradition they have over here is on birthdays everyone gets to celebrate with a sparkler. Even the adults. Besides, you are never to old for fun. :)

Fireworks can be difficult, but I see that you have done very well. I especially liked the last one.

These fireworks photos are great. Reminds me of the few times per year they are available to watch.
