4th of July, Iowa style

We had rain for the parade Saturday morning, jackets required. What's up with that! I took the "big" camera, but no memory card. Crap. Can you believe that. It's in the computer. I wondered if it was in the camera when I changed the battery, but got distracted before I could check. Imagine that. Duh! Oh well. Snapped a few at the parade, enough.

No parade candy until you eat some lunch.


Packed and ready for the fireworks. Long sleeves, long pants, blanket, flashlight, binoculars, Lightning McQueen, blue version, and the security items. He decided to leave his book at home, yeah, good idea.

Ok, Ma asked where my 4th photos were...she might be sorry she asked. Seems like I took a lot...thankfully I remembered the memory card.

Here's a short video. I was impressed with the quality from the Nikon D90.

Fonda, your fireworks pictures are amazing! Looks like a fun time. The weather here cleared up enough for a nice evening, a little on the cool side, but at least the rain stopped!

OK, you win again.

You got some great fireworks shots! Dang to the missing card in the camera; I HATE when that happens. Luckily DH often thinks to check such things:)

For the first time I can remember, we didn't go to the parade. It was raining pretty steadily/hard here, our friends we often go with were out of town, and I didn't want to have to sit in the rain or stand to nurse the baby. Not to mention not all of us own waterproof jackets:)
