What birthday would be complete without fireworks? We had a great time and a whole lot more fireworks than on the fourth of July. Too bad my kids are such scaredy cats. They all loved the snaps, even Seth and he could actually make them work (some of the time). Emily had a blast dancing around the driveway to pop all of the ones that didn't work the first time.
Inspired by my friend Debbie, I did some experimenting with my camera and the sparklers. The pictures didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped, but I still think they are pretty cool. Tayleigh had run into the house and was watching out the window by this point but Eden was brave enough to try a few sparklers, even if she did throw them in the bucket of water when they were only about halfway through.
Even my Grandma and Great Aunt Norma got in the action. It was pretty funny. They waved the sparklers around and sang primary pioneer songs.
And once again during the fountains I played with my camera and got a few decent shots. Everyone but Tayleigh and Seth really enjoyed the fireworks. After a little while Tayleigh gave up watching at the window and went into the living room to play. Grandpa was sweet enough to go with her. They watched a show about elephants. Seth just laid in my arms trying desperately to go to sleep, but scared to death of the fireworks. Poor baby.
