Happy 4th of July

I hope you all had a "sparkling" 4th of July. Unfortunately, here in St. Louis it poured rain most of the day. However, it stopped late in the afternoon and we were able to set off a few of our fireworks. It wouldn't be a 4th of July without little ones blowing bubbles and showing their excitement over the fireworks. We spent the afternoon at my step-daughter Leah and her husband Mike's home. It was supposed to be a "pool party" but the weather did not cooperate. Friends came over with their daughter Mia to play with my grandchildren Ella and Michael "Bubby."

My son-in-law Mike and his friend John are really just big kids.
Check out the fireworks they had for the evening!!

I tried to capture the "sparkling" event. Mike set up a "firework" launching area on the far side of the pool. It was perfect. The reflection of the fireworks in the pool was beautiful.

The evening ended with a downpour of rain just AFTER we had put everything away and went into the house!! We had a great 4th of July.
