Light Show

As I stated yesterday, after shooting the fireworks, I was ready to see what we could do with sparklers. We actually played a little with them by the water also. Most of the kids were having a blast, but Canon was a little weary of them so he stayed with Craig most of the time.

Since I didn't have my tripod {doh!} all of the people ended up blurry but the light trails are fun.

After the fireworks we headed back to my parents' house for a little fun of our own.

We started out small, just to see what these babies could do. They started drawing shapes in the air. The common circle.

We got a double infinity.

Getting a little messier...

 Craig even acted as a aircraft marshaller.

Oh, but it had to go downhill sometime. My super mature brother decided to draw a large backside. "I'm gonna touch the butt!"  That sparkly booty is now forever immortalized in photograph form. Well played, Walker. Well played.

After standing still for a while, I wanted to see what it would look like if they were moving around a lot. I asked for some "ribbon dancing" of sorts. Of course, my brother and sister took that to mean "an epic battle worthy of any Harry Potter scene". Potato. Potahto.

Not sure, but I think this means Walker was winning.

Fancy footwork Weatherly...

...but it doesn't seem to be enough to withstand his force.

Victory dance then ensued.

This was definitely one of the best times that I have had in a long time. There was so much laughter and ribbing, and only a couple of burns.

RIP Craig's shirt. It sustained three burns and couldn't be revived. It is survived by Craig himself who lived to tell the tale. Thank the good Lord for that.

I also learned some very valuable photography lessons {ahem...tripod} that I will be implementing next time.

Oh, but come back tomorrow for more Fourth of July weekend fun with Craig's parents. You know you wanna.
