4th of July 2010 Celebrations
Brady and I had a terrific 4th of July! It was on a Sunday, but we did manage to enjoy the festivities.
In the afternoon Brady played with smoke bombs.
He had them all lined up for a display of smoke.
Then he ran through them.
Dancing and loving all the colors. He is such a fun kid!
We only purchased a few fireworks. We had really long sparklers that lasted a long time. I really enjoyed the big sparklers.
I also gave my Primary class small sparklers for fun that day. I couldn't give a treat because it was fast Sunday so I settled on sparklers. They loved them.
Here Brady is lighting our $10 fountain.
We only had 5 fountains of different sizes. They all were really good!
This is the $3 fountain. Wonderful!
We also walked down to Storey Park and enjoyed the firework show by Meridian Speedway.
They had a live band and booths. It was lots of fun. Most of the families with children brought their fireworks to the park. There were tons.
Brady and I brought Phase 10 along and played a game while waiting for the fireworks to begin. I admit that I have not gone to the park to watch the fireworks for years - because we can watch it from our back yard. I really loved being there under the fireworks. I love the live band too!
On the way home from the firework show - I fell down. We were walking up Bower street and it was pitch black. I couldn't see a thing and I didn't like not being able to see what the street conditions were. We were walking on the side of the road in gravel and I wanted to be on the road. So I tried to find the road and all of a sudden it was a rise by at least 6 inches above the gravel (which I couldn't see). Then I went tumbling down. I was embarrassed - hating not being able to see what I was walking on - due to NO street lights. It was a bad road to be walking on. Anyway - I didn't hurt myself - only my pride. :-D
Brady and I had a wonderful day!
