4th Of July Celebrations

I had an amazing time celebrating the 4th of July this past weekend. Every year, my family goes to the local parade in our city, we go to a big park with thousands of other people to watch huge, in the sky fireworks, and then on the 5th we invited over all of our friends to watch the fireworks that we had purchased and lit in the street.

Parade

We may be Americans, but we also enjoy the use of bagpipes when it comes to Parades. I don't think I've ever attended a parade here that didn't have bagpipes!


We also had people on boats who threw water balloons and sprayed us with water-guns.


This was actually really unexpected! All of a sudden, the car on the right just drove up the back of his friend in front! It was really awesome! To get off, the guy in front just drove out from under him.


I thought the costumes that these women were wearing were really cute! In addition to their outfits, they were also wearing really epic shoes! (I took the photo of the backs of their heads because I didn't want to post a photo of them online without their consent where their faces/identities could be known)

This was my first time ever taking a Time-Lapse photo! I was really excited to try this feature on my phone, and I thought that it would help you guys get a better feel for the fireworks show that I went to see with my family! However, because it was my first time doing it, I didn't make it very long... Hey! I didn't know that they're more fun when they're longer!

Alright, instead of taking photos of the fireworks that we did with my family and friends, I decided to try another Time-Lapse Photo. This time I made it quite a bit longer! All of the fireworks that we set off were done responsibly, so don't worry!


In addition to it being my first time doing that type of photo, this is also my first time putting a "video" into one of my blog posts! You'll have to let me know how well it works!

My very own Mother, My Mommykins, was born on the 4th of July. She'd always loved having her birthday on holiday, because it's like the entire country is celebrating her! (Which is exactly what her parents told her when she was growing up.) She also never has to work on her birthday, and everyone remembers when it is! My dad and I were in charge of wrapping her presents, but my dad is an extremely busy person, so I was able to wrap all of the things we got her (for the most part) on my own. And, let me tell you, I did a terrible job! I don't know how people do it! Wrapping things is so hard! I had to wrap a broom, and when I was don it didn't look anything like a broom! Wrapping Presents is not one of my strong suits....
