backyard fireworks.

I hope your fourth of July was as lovely as ours.  We drove to meet some folks in a nearby city to see the fireworks, but happened to be late.  On our drive back, we stopped by a field near home.  We live in somewhat of a mountainous elevation, about 1000 feet, so from that field, we could see fireworks in downtown Baltimore and two other cities.  It was so, so beautiful to see the sparks in three different parts of the vast sky.  Wide open fields are one of the loveliest things.  Especially at night.

When we got home, my husband and brother lit up some fireworks and sparklers in the backyard.  Baby Dhara got a taste of July fourth in her own backyard.  She was amazed at all the flashes of light in the night sky.
