All day long I am asked the same questions. Children are excited and I am happily preparing everything for the big event. The helium filled balloons are readied by love of my life while Pat, the methodical genius, bags the popcorn.
It rained buckets last night, making the banner I hung over the entrance look pretty sad as it sags low. Spirits are still high, though and I find myself looking forward to the celebration. The skies are threatening to ruin the event as we start to eat our dinner. We did get a shower that cooled us off and made the night quite pleasant.
I tried to capture some good shots............ I really did. This was the best of the batch and doesn't do justice to the actual display.
Sparklers and children with popsicles and happy chaos. I wish I had been able to capture it all. We received many compliments and thank yous that make our job worthwhile. We couldn't do it with the help from our friends, though. Big, big thanks to Pat and Deb. We missed Bob and Karen tremendously. These two couples take up all the slack we are unable to fill ourselves. They keep picking us up over and over and we are so thankful for them!
