Last night was our 2nd annual Freedom Celebration in our hometown. It was a wonderful night with great weather and lots of people, fun, and food.
There are local acts that perform, and normally a big Christian Band is there. This year "NewSong" Performed. They did a great job.
I just thought this was a really cool picture so I am showing it to you. :)
Then we had this awesomely big firework show! The fireworks were so big that we had to sit behind a "fallout zone".
Notice that last one has a smiley face. :)
Remember that "fallout zone" I mentioned a minute ago. Well apparently it was not big enough. While we are watching the fireworks, I felt something hit my leg. I thought a friend of mine that was sitting behind me, was trying to get my attention. Well she wasn't so I looked around, because something or someone hit my leg. I look down and see something, so I pick it up and it is the remains of a firework, about as big as my hand. Then we are continuing to watch when all the sudden one of the fireworks does not go out before hitting the ground. It was a scary scary thing to see. It sort of looked like this.
I did not get a picture of it coming down, because I was in shock for a moment. When it all landed I did get a picture of this.
That would be fire, in the middle of a lot of people, in the grass.
The fireworks continued with one more scary moment right after that in front of us. This resulted in a freaked out Little Logan.
They finished up with some spectacular fireworks.
As we were packing up to leave after all the excitement was over, out of nowhere here comes another piece of red hot firework. Can you guess where it landed?
On Logan's head!!! Now he was really freaked out. It did not burn him, but I think he might be a little leary of another firework show after this.
It was still a pretty good evening despite the few firework mishaps. God was certainly there protecting us all as we celebrated the freedom that we enjoy in this country and as we honored those who serve and have served to allow us to keep that freedom.
