5th of July Fireworks

I've written before about how I love fireworks. This year it rained all day on the Fourth so the fireworks were rescheduled for Sunday. I wasn't sure if I was going to go because traffic is notoriously bad and I was kind of moody. I kept saying, "Well, I've seen fireworks before." But then finally, I realized I really wanted to see them this year and so M devised a plan to circumvent traffic and park where we thought we'd have a good view. We weren't exactly sure but M felt confident that on the other side of this open field we'd have a clear view.

We went with our neighbor Deana and her daughter Kylie who is 2 1/2 and so adorable. But first we played with smoke bombs and sparklers in the front yard. So Kylie kept calling fireworks "the smokes" which was hilarious. M took quite a few pictures of the fireworks, which turned out amazing and so did our view. Take a look:
