Our 4th Of July

We had a such a fun 4th of July!  I thought you might like to see a few pictures from the day.  My sister and I got two hours of fun shopping in early and then I headed home to get some things done before our annual church picnic.

We managed to get a decent family picture. Of course, Ridley’s not smiling much, but at least he was looking toward the camera {if not, at it}! Ha!

The church picnic was such a wonderful time of food, fun and fireworks!

We had a raw egg toss…

Tug ‘o war…

And I actually got a few fireworks photos that weren’t blurred to bits.

{love it}

I used this amazing fireworks photography tutorial.  I need to work on it more, but the improvement is significant since last year’s blurry bursts of fireworks. :)

Did y’all have a nice 4th?

  1. We had a lovely 4th but my photos didn’t come out like yours. I wish I had read that fireworks tutorial as everything is out of focus on mine. I’ve got plenty of time to practice before next year.

  2. I made the patriotic triffle you posted and it was a big hit! And so easy. I had to use an inverted cake cover as my triffle bowl but it worked out fine. :D

  6. Looks like you had a great time! My little guys and I didn’t do much, we were too tired from our vacation! My husband and oldest boy celebrated in West Virginia where they are working with the Appalachian Service Project this week.

    Thanks for the link for the fireworks tutorial too! I’ll bookmark it for next year :)

  7. I enjoyed my 4th of July too much to take a photo of it.Looking at yours, I’m kinda sad I didn’t.
