Happy (belated) 4th of July!!

4th of July is one of our favorite holidays! The much anticipated fireworks are what keep the kids going until it is finally dark enough for the display to begin. This year the festivities were held at Vogelweh which is about 30 minutes from our house. There are always a lot of fun rides, games, and great food!!

The kids' favorite rides were the bumper cars and horse rides!

Ian was happy just watching everyone!

Jacque has an obsession with motorcycles (like his Dad) so this made his day!

I've tried MANY times to get pictures of the fireworks and have failed miserably! Not long before we were heading out for the day I saw that my friend Belinda had posted an article on how to get great firework pictures. I didn't have time to really figure out how to set my camera's setting properly, but we did get better pictures this year.

This year the display began at 10:30....we have very LONG summer days here (sun up at like 5AM) Anyway, here was our attempt this year to capture some of the fireworks!

And this is just because Ian was being so cute!
This may be one of last toothless grins...he FINALLY has one almost there.

Those are awesome fireworks shots! 10:30 is so late though, not sure if I could stay awake that long!!! ;-)
