fabulous fourth

we had ourselves a nice, quiet fourth of july. the older boys were with their dad, on a road trip to utah to visit family there. so we headed to colorado springs. my mom was in town for the weekend. no crowds. no craziness. just simple pleasures!

and some hot tubing....



followed, of course, by fireworks. this was noah's first experience with fireworks. he did not dissapoint. i don't know if his love of them is a good thing or a bad thing. but it was highly entertaining!


no photoshopping these pics...gotta love that low ISO setting....


a good day. much like thanksgiving, to me the fourth is a day to take stock of our blessings and be THANKFUL for them. especially this wonderful country we live in.

Those are awesome pictures! Sounds like a fun 4th. I've been thinking about you and wondering how you've been feeling.

Nice Pix. Good thing I'm not shy. We were so blessed to be able to have your mom and the three of you here.

You did a great job with the low iso settings!

oh look at your handsome noah! your sparkler shots are awesome - i checked my camera and it only allows me to go down to 200 ISO, so i'll have to mess around with my other options, sadly.
