Bayview Daze

Saturday evening the kids and I drove over to Bayview to check out their Independence weekend celebrations. The little quiet town of quaint float houses and boat docks was one old fashioned Americana festival. We arrived about 7 PM and stayed for the lighted boat parade and their beautiful fireworks display that was out over the water.

Little Nathan became a bit skitterish when the folks next to us set off a few fireworks, but later sat on my lap with fingers in ears to watch the aerial show. All, in all, we had a great evening celebrating our country's freedom. The only one missing was DH. It was a rare day to have all of my children home and will surely be treasured in the banks of my memories for years to come. Sweet dreams.

When it comes to fireworks, they seem more beautiful when they are shot over the water. One time we were on Shaw Island (In the San Jaun's off the coast of Washington) and their foreworks display was over the water and it was beautiful.
