Tony and I received tickets to go to Lacey Park to watch the Fourth of July Fireworks. We had two extra tickets so our friends Rich and Hilly went with us… For us, there is nothing better than friends, a picnic dinner, and games all enjoyed on a blanket while waiting in anticipation of the fireworks. Lightning and thunder impress me more, but I still appreciate the fireworks and what they represent for us, as Americans. I am so grateful for my freedom… and I know that did not come without a price.
First, meet our kiwi friends Rich and Hilly:
and now for just a few of the fireworks… (first attempt at trying to capture fireworks on camera)
