Last night being fireworks night it was a prerequisite that there would be loud bangs and bright colours. The kids and I had a great time watching them from the bedroom window and the conservatory. We ooo’ed and arr’ed with the best of them.
We then went and had our own mini display at my parents. My god it was cold. Both kids were wrapped up in some many layers they could barely move. Eldest has a torch with which he took great delight in blinding his dad and grampy at any given moment. My youngest was a little more apprehensive and she wanted to be held a lot or watch from inside the greenhouse.
The mini display was fantastic. My parents had got a lovely selection of explosives. My dad and husband have worked out a system since we started doing these mini displays 4 years ago. The first one was the year my Milo passed away.
The kids loved the bangs and my daughter especially liked the crackle ones. My favourites were the rockets and the multi-shot cannons.
Here are some of the photos of last night. We were not that close to the fireworks. I have cropped them.
The bottom photo and the long firework shot just above it are of the rocket that we sent up just for my Milo. We like to have one just for him.
