Eve of Pioneer Day
One of the days that it is lawful to set off firecrackers. I think I mentioned before that we bought some to light ablaze.
Below is a pic of the sign at the supermarket where we bought the fireworks, stating that we must be 16 to purchase and that we can only use them 3 days before or after 4th of July, New Year's Day and Pioneer Day (a Utah State hol).
Invited the neighbors to join in. It was really spetacular and fun! I didn't capture much on cam, cos ds2 was grabbing me very tightly, he was scared. dh was concerned with the lighting, so he didn't take pics too.
The bigger ones had many colours and also shot up very high. Awesome.
Above left: after watching BBC's "Charlie and Lola", ds1 wanted me to buy a card game called "Flip Flop" that the kids were playing in the DVD. I had no idea if there was such a game on sale, but anyway I told him we don't have so much money, make your own. Gave him some paper and he drew all the cards himself. He also cut up the cards by himself. He gradually added on to them till he has about 80 cards now, so when he asks me to play with him, I'd groan inwardly, cos it takes a looooong time to get through all the cards.
Above right: this was so silly. dh laughed so hard when he saw it. Dh's laptop is this white Apple. The desktop has our family pic as the wallpaper. While he was left to his own devices, ds1 dragged all the desktop icons to cover all our eyes and mouths, making us all look like some kind of a monster. When asked, he said we are ultramen. Indeed!
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
