365 - Fireworks and Family

We had a fun and low-key fourth of July. Actually, our celebrating was done on the 3rd because that's when the fireworks were scheduled in our lake front neighborhood. There's a guy with an empty lot down by the lake, and he hires a fireworks company and sets off an insane amount of fireworks. We usually watch the show from the neighborhood pool, and I love seeing all the lights of the boats on the lake that are parked to watch the show. You can see them in the bottom right of this photo:

Below are some more fireworks shots. I feel a little guilty because Rebecca fixed the settings on the camera and just handed the tripod to me. I only cropped these and did nothing to enhance the color. Hey, I didn't choose the watermark "Lazy Susan Photography" for nothing!

I took a few shots of the kids decorating cookies:

And last, but not least, we did a little photo shoot in our patriotic colors right after church. Disclaimer: Rebecca took most of these. I only took the one of the four kids. It was Terry's idea to do the "Iwo Jima" pose.
