It's Alphabe-Thursday and I am linking up with Mrs. Jenny!
So far in July we have had 2 holidays, Canada Day and Independence Day. As an "Internationally Mixed" family [half Canadian, half American] we celebrate both!
Our resident Canadian was "on holiday" in Canada on Canada Day this year, celebrating with his buddies, but Uncle Dan made sure our little "half-Canucks" got a chance to celebrate.
He took Brodie shopping for fireworks.
They loved them!
As soon as the fuse was lit, Blayd would jump up and down screaming,
"THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART!!!!"
Brodie was just as excited and felt so big as Uncle Dan allowed him to "help" light a few.
He also proudly wore his Canadian hat and should the police arrive, he had a plan in place to tell them we were celebrating Canada Day because he was half Canadian.
By July 4th, which is also the Canadian's birthday, he was back in town and we spent all day by the pool at my Dad's.
It was your typical blistering Southern Fare.
The long day in the heat didn't stop them from heading back to my Mother's house for more fireworks with Uncle Dan.
We had a great view!
And lots of fireworks to shoot!
Uncle Dan said, "Never give a 6 year old carte blanche at a fireworks outlet."
We launched a Chinese Lantern, too...
B and b were super tired from the long day, but still enjoyed every boom and blast.
I, on the other hand, got an ember in the eye and burned a blister on my eyeball.
It was windy and I was not paying attention because I was staring upward with my camera. SIGHBut, regardless of almost losing an eye, I loved having our own private fireworks show with no crowd and no chaos.
H is for Holidays
