Year 2 Day 38: Remember, Remember...
Although Bonfire Night is officially celebrated on the 5th of November, it is not uncommon to hear/see fireworks displays in the area leading up to and just past the day of celebration. In fact, it is likely that you will notice more on the weekend following as that is when families are more likely to be free from other commitments to take it all in.
This photo captured some of the festivities occurring just down the road from our house. I happen to have a fabulous 'fireworks' macro on my camera that I have been dying to try out. Had they been on a more professional scale, I think you might have gotten a bit more content...but these are back-garden variety after all.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
