Fireworks!

I love the 4th of July....almost as much as Halloween ... But not quite that much!
Continuing with our annual picnic from the weekend, here are some AWESOME shots my sister got on her camera of the fireworks.

This first photo is one I took and altered...but the rest of the gorgeous ones are compliments of my sister! Enjoy.























You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
