Happy Birthday, America!

Chad's Grandma made her annual 4th of July visit to Lawrence this weekend, and for the second year in a row we drove down to the booming metropolis of Baldwin City to see the fireworks show there. I've never been a huge fan of watching or shooting off fireworks, but let me just say I love this small town show. You park right in the parking lot of the high school, and the fireworks go off right in the ball fields, so they're practically exploding right on top of you! It's so much fun!

It was so great topping off our super-relaxing day with super-fun fireworks! I had a blast playing with my camera, adjusting the shutter speed and trying to capture some of the action. Of course I took way too many pictures and the fireworks don't look nearly as cool as they did in person, but it was still tons of fun!

Happy 4th of July, friends!!!
