#185 Independence Day.

For the 4th, I didn’t get to see my parents since they’re at the beach — but we did take a drive south (in the old VW! YAY!) for some fun with Ben’s family.
Us three Napier sisters made funfetti cupcake cones for an after-dinner treat, then our husbands went outside to shoot each other with colorfully packaged explosives.
I was playing with my camera and stumbled upon the most cliched trick in the world — the old sparkler message with a long exposure. We had SO much fun trying to get it right.


Eri….n. Couldn’t finish mine in time.


One name that’s missing here is Allison. That’s because she’s horrified of fireworks and was hiding behind me during the shooting. Hysterical.
