Family, Friends & Fireworks

We had a blast at our annual gathering to celebrate the 4th of July even though it was blistering hot. We moved the tables and chairs around to catch the shade as the sun crossed the sky throughout the day. Along with catching glimpses of the adults wiggling their toes in the kiddie pool, slipping ice cubes down an unspecting target's shirt and lots of ice cold drinks in coolers scattered around the yard we managed to stay reasonably cool.

My grandaughter sported berry stained lips most of the day from sneaking off to rob sweet blackberries and raspberries off the vines near the garden. Who cares about jam anyway?

As the sun began to set, everyone settled into a cozy spot to await the firework display to light up the nightime sky. No one was disappointed with the spectacular show! I used a "fireworks" setting on my camera for the first time and was treated to some interesting results.
I can't imagine a better way to spend the day than with friends, family and fireworks!
