Explosions in the Sky

To me, the Fourth of July has always been the marker for the peak point of summer. It's a time to enjoy the company of friends and family, to go swimming, visit local zoos and enjoy the freedom that comes along with long sunny days and mild evenings.

It's also the perfect day to enjoy big bright explosions in the sky. I almost had to miss the fireworks this year in favor of sleep for a ridiculously early morning shift (who in their right mind wants to come to coffee-bucks at 6am on the 5th of July??) but my boss asked me to switch to the evening shift and so the lovely and I headed downtown for the big booms.

I've seen a lot of fireworks in my time and these were the best I've ever seen. I'm so happy we were able to go! I hope you all had an wonderful weekend.

P.S... thank you for all the bloggy birthday wishes! You guys are the best.


  1. Very nice fireworks! We in Hungary celebrate August 20th, day of our first and holy king with fireworks too:)

  2. South Cacolacky, as the grands call it, has some kick ass fireworks huh? Where they lived, they would go to the lake in Columbia and sit on the docks and watch the huge displays. Ry kept asking this year how come there wasn't two fireworks to see....we couldn't figure it out until we saw him looking at the road in front of us. He was looking for the reflection in the water.....we ain't got water here, but little guy was puzzled because that is all he's known.
    I love that you call it coffee-bucks... Happy just an ordinary day too, hard working girl. Come see the pix of my newest insanity...Ms. Ellie Mae Scootles of the Cibola County Scootles. much love to a very sweet artiste.

  3. Love the fireworks pictures!! I love - actually ADORE fireworks. I watch them whenever the opportunity presents itself. This may be dangerous if I'm driving... - Love these photos.
