Our Fourth of July

My mom is a nurse at a hospital in Tampa Bay. In the past on the Fourth of July my family goes to the top of the parking garage at the hospital to watch the fireworks. It isn't the closest view but it is close enough. It's kind of cool because the parking garage is high and right of off the bay so we can see the fireworks they fire off at Channelside in Tampa and when you look across the Bay you can see about 4 or 5 firwork shows going off in St. Petersburg at a distance. The scenery is picture worthy so I was trying to get pictures of me and Maddie with a nice background. It didn't work out to well because I had already let her down on the ground so when I picked her back up to take the picture she wasn't having it. My camera hasn't been taking very good pictures lately. The lighting has been weird, and the pictures usually come out blurry and out of focus. My mom says I just need to clean the lense but personally I think I need a new camera. Plus my mom had it on some weird setting so this is how they came out...



Maddie was kind of tired and cranky. I ended up putting her in the carseat about 15 minutes before the firework started. My mom was saying that she was going to be scared but I took her out to watch the fireworks anyway and she wasn't scared. We were far enough that they didn't phase her. She seemed to like looking at the "lights". And when the finale began I pointed to it and she looked and smiled, clapped and said yayy.

Being high enough to see several shows at once across the city is always cool. My daughter fell asleep waiting for them to start and my 4 month old son was asleep in the car seat. Haha. I posted pics of her snoozing in the midst of all the noise. Glad you had a good Fourth of July!

Glad to see that the rain didn't ruin your 4th of July! (We got pretty lucky here in Miami!) I don't know what attracts thunderstorms to the entire state of Florida!

I was down the beach and got to see the fireworks on the bay side and ocean side. Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!

That's cool about the fireworks! I didn't make it to any fireworks this year but my brothers set some off. :) Glad you and Maddie are doing well!
