John stopped by on Saturday to tell us to go to a particular fireworks stand. When we got there, Isaac’s martial arts instructor (for 2 classes) was there, and I started chatting with him. He gave us some killer discounts and freebies which made the fireworks buying experience so much more pleasant as we definitely have a fairly low budget on fireworks.
PART ONE – Moving Day
Isaac and I helped Uncle Robb and Auntie Crystal move out of their condo and put their stuff into storage. Then we rushed home to gobble down some lunch before part two.
PART TWO – Tank Wars with JohnboyJJB and Ella.
PART THREE – Jason and Isaac’s Tank War
Setting up the first battle.
Check out the action shot. Big men can move fast when explosives are involved.
Reversed matching outfits. I noticed this as they were battling and thought “I have got to get a picture of this!”
PART FOUR – Fireworks in the evening with the cousins at their house.
There were more fireworks and sparklers, but I’m going to end with this photo. It reminds me of family who are also friends, and it reminds me of the wonder of childhood and the amazement we seem to often leave behind as we grow up. May we continue to be amazed by the world around us, by fireworks and nature and joy and family and God.
