The Day Ended With Fireworks.

Last Saturday was our city's Heritage Days. We look forward to so many aspects of it every year. Here are a few of the highlights:
Saturday morning's car show. We saw lots and lots of very cool restored cars. Some from the 30's, some from the 50's and 60's and 70's. And even some very new ones. My kids were in heaven. We studied many an engine. Beautifully clean and sparkly engines.

Isaac was looking specifically for a 1967 Shelby. I've never heard of it. But Isaac was satisfied with many of the Ford 'Stangs.

That evening we went to the rodeo. Instead of getting there for the Mutton Bustin', which would have guaranteed seats up close, we got there after the main event began, thus seating us behind others who had already guaranteed an up close spot. We enjoyed pretzels and water (oh yeah, we know how to par-tay!) and the kids went up to the fence to watch.

I enjoy taking pictures and keeping identities private. Notice the skill in snapping the above shot with the fence rod neatly placed over the cowboy's face. I'm all about privacy. And of course, below you'll notice I got this cow gal's backside. I'm so good!

As the rodeo dwindled, the kids set out for other entertainment. There was this old minivan set aside for bashing. For just $2 you could beat on it for 1 minute. Sam won my last $2 and got to bash the van.

He made quite a few holes and dents. Daniel and I thought it might be a good idea to have something like that set up in the backyard for letting aggression fly and so forth.

We'll let you know if we come up with something...

He got to sign his name when he was finished. Ruthie snapped all the photos of him, so the guy told her to go put her name on it too. She was thrilled!

Sam in his Zombie Zone...

We set up our blanket and crap, I mean stuff, to get ready for the fire works. As young boys played football and kept crashing into people, and as teenagers (seen behind Ruthie) were running amok to show off, Ruthie chose to meditate. Isaac keeps hiding from the camera. And then when I finally have a good one, he goes in and deletes it. Isaac: if you hadn't deleted that awesome picture of you, you wouldn't be looking at this silly thang on my blog right now!

After 10 the fireworks finally began. After going to Hot Rockin' 4th last year, we decided that our city does way better fireworks! We thoroughly enjoyed theses!

Have an awesome day and don't forget to lay back and end the day to enjoy some fireworks.
