oh, and for giving us all a phenom reason to ignore bedtimes and instead light sparklers, lie back on a thick blanket & watch fireworks in a crammed parking lot on the side of ford road at 10:30p.m. on a sunday night!
*below each firework photo, i included the settings i used per the requests i received after posting these photos. this is what i used, i'm sure there are better ways, but this may help someone get started:)

i used my canon 24-70 f/2.8L zoom lens
we returned home from up north happily satisfied with all the fun we had with family. truly exhausted and ready to get out of the van we had been riding in for hours and race to get showers & baths and into bed...
but it was the 4th of july...
so we decided to get up and get out 'cause i knew our little posh and becks would LOVE the adventure. especially if it meant staying up late again.
so tired mommy, daddy, sito, and gido sprayed bug repellant over our freshly showered and lotioned up arms and legs, grabbed the sparklers, blankets, and flashlights and set off to find the beautifully lit up and loud celebration in the sky!
i heard beckham say, "boom, BOOM!" after the bursts of colorful 'lightening' in the sky! we heard oohs and ahhs and excitement in their tired little
i watched at they grew more and more tired as the time ticked on, but not admitting to it for fear we would have packed them up at the
first chance we had to get out in the nick of time to beat traffic. ha.
we weren't at our beautiful beach in naples, which i miss so much, but gido found a patch of green grass for us and we did enjoy the warm night. thank you.
