It’s Raining.. It’s Pouring.. No Fireworks Were Roaring..

Last night we headed over to my friend Kristen’s house to watch

some fireworks.  Her brother in law just became certified (or something

like that) in Pyrotechnics.

We sat down and got ready for the show.. and it started

raining… and raining..

But that didn’t stop us…


Even The Man and #4 and #5 stood in the rain to watch…

until it got so bad.. we had to stop 🙁

Here’s what the weather looks like here… not so good for fireworks..

I take my Photos at Night.. So no one sees…

I’m not going all goth (or is it emo? ) on anyone.. but I really love to take photos at night. It started a couple of years ago, right after I received my camera. I took a few photos just for fun of my kids in the dark.. Anyone who has read my blog knows I’m not a photographer… but I love the way these photos look.

This photo was taken of #5 on the 4th of July two years ago.

#1 looking like she’s ready to say something prolific.

When I take these, I just point in the direction the people are… and have the flash on.

Sometimes they look really neat, other times funny.. and sometimes just bad.

She could be praying that I don’t take her photo.. or she might be asleep.

#3 looks abused in this photo.. but she really just got done yelling at #2.

Here’s #3 and her Best Friend. They are pretty cute huh?

I love the way the black surrounds the photo and just lights them up.

There is probably a special name for this.. but as I said.. I’m not a photographer.

Here’s #1, #4, #5..

They were watching fireworks in our front yard.

Here’s #5 in a similar pose from 2 years ago.

#4 looking cute.
