I have seen so many beautiful pictures of fireworks, posted by my blogger friends across this country, in the last two days. Just beautiful!
I don't think I took a single picture of fireworks! Sorry...
However, I did take lots of pictures of the people I love enjoying the fireworks.
First things first -
My patriotic toes!
A beautiful summer's afternoon deserves a few rounds of backyard Croquet.
Zion loved pounding the stakes into the ground!
We celebrated Emilee's birthday a few days early, since we were all together.
Larry and Barb
Tim and Kevin have been friends since elementary school. His wife, Anna, was Emilee's roommate in college. Isn't it convenient how that worked out!
I loved this picture - just because.
This one too!
Now, on to the Fireworks!!
Zion was a little unsure at first...
But he got over his fear!
Canaan, of course, loved every minute of it.
He REALLY wanted to light some of the "big" ones and was very disappointed when I told him he wasn't old enough yet.
Personally, I wasn't sure these boys were really old enough yet! (and they have been lighting things on fire, together, for a l o n g time!)
Kelsey looks like she is still a kid at heart.
