This month has been a month of firsts for me, and summer has been great! These are my first attempts at fireworks or lightning & WHAT FUN it was! Last night we had a small thunder storm near our house and I noticed that there were actual bolts on display... many times we just see the clouds light up but no actual bolts... so I grabbed my camera & ran outside. My husband puts up with so much :) -- he had to deal with all 3 tiered kiddos while I was outside playing, and my kids have gotten so used to it, that when I walked back in my 4 year old daughter said "so mom did you get the shot?" I laughed & said "I hope so!!" Now if we could only get some nice rain with these "storms" I would be a happy woman!! This was my son's first fireworks display & he LOVED it!!!
