Piggy-backing onto the fishing post is another from our wknd at the lake cottage. We enjoyed fireworks put on by my sister and her husband. I think my BIL has a bit of an addiction to them, quite frankly. But we all enjoyed it just the same. Not only did he buy all the firecrackers, but he also built a gizmo to launch them more efficiently (and safely). It was pretty simple in design, but oh so clever. Kept MOST of the fireworks from falling onto the boathouse. Phew!
The kids had a great time twirling the extra long sparklers while we waited for the sun to set. A neighbor brought all the fixings for s'mores so we enjoyed those too while waiting. There were a few "test" shots fired off which got the kiddos even more excited for the actual show. Unfortunately, my camera was having trouble focusing once the fireworks started going off. I think it was all the smoke. But I did get a few. 🙂
I think the kids' favorites were the bottle rockets and the ones they could hold which shot out 10 small blasts. Darn…can't remember what those are called, but you can see my oldest is firing one over the lake on the left a few rows up from the bottom. 🙂
Hope you and yours had a festive 4th.
