Taking a Stand on the 4th of July

Our neighbors are the BEST when it comes to the 4th of July.


They buy oodles and oodles of amazing fireworks.


So we park it on our front lawn and mooch the view. 


But this year, while we were sitting outside, a lightning bug almost landed on my head.


I may or may not have screamed like a little girl. 


However, I didn't even blink an eye when two wayward fireworks exploded in the yard directly across from us.  In fact, it just solidified my opinion even more. 


Bugs should be illegal.

When it comes to bugs I'm a girl! I don't want them near me.

Yeah, my girlies slept through all the fireworks displays - which were still going on last night, on July 5th??? - but a bug bite? No way...

Sign me up!

I second that. And let's include spiders, too, since they aren't technically bugs. just to be clear.

Love the fireworks pics. I learned this year that they are really hard to get just right!

Brandy said...

Kristy said...

Megan said...

Seizing My Day: Yup, I took the pictures!

i don't mind bugs, mostly. 'skeeters, well, they bite my big kid and he's allergic so he welts like crazy - so those bugs i HATE! ugh.
our neighbors do crazy fireworks, too. forgot my camera, too, but it was awesome to sit on their front lawn - watch the big show - and then walk home.

Super great pictures! All of my firework photos turned out blurry, clearly I wasn't using a fast enough shutter speed! What's your secret?

Bugs are nasty. I firmly believe that God only made bugs because he needed something to do with all the leftover parts of people that he didn't need anymore.

Megan, I really love your way of writing--makes me smile!
Your photos of these fireworks are great! We live on a lake and our neighbors across the lake somewhere put on more than one night of awesome fireworks, which I could watch from the comfort of my Family Room couch!! It was wonderful! Especially because I do not like mosquitoes.
