They started small with whatever these were and sparklers while they waited for the sky to darken a little more.
I tried to keep the bugs away while meandering around. I happened to catch a firework exploding while I was taking photos of the sunset. Everyone did their own thing while waiting for night to fall.
Soon enough darkness fell and explosions took place. Not all of them ended well.
Little miss was the most excited about the spinner.
Little man was pleased to light off the Lusitania.
The boat made it through the explosion and the following storm so little man thought it deserved a "proper burial" which consisted of a temporary sinking and was then disposed of properly.
The Saturday was a rather lazy day. A huge storm came through and it rained for a number of hours. Then little man found out what happens when you accidentally slam your finger in the door - the door wins. I will spare you any gory photos but it's a bit mangled. He'll live though, and perhaps he will remember this little life lesson...
Today was sunny and muggy. The hubby was helping with more projects so I took the opportunity to look for signs of life. The 17-year cicadas are all gone now but I found some new friends during my walkabout.
In the meantime, I have been busy creating. The designing muse hit once again and I have been working on a few new patterns so stay tuned for those. Yes, despite all my current WiP's, Must Cast On All The Things!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have made good progress lately though on a few projects so hopefully I will have photos of those before too long :)
Hope you had a nice Holiday Weekend!
