July Finding Lifestyle Blog Circle | Details

It’s time for another installment of the monthly blog circle between the lovely ladies in our Finding Lifestyle group. Here’s how a blog circle works – you check out my post, and then click the link to check out the next one, and keep going around until you come back to mine again. It’s a fun way to see how each person has a different take on the same topic.

This month the topic is details, and I decided to go a slightly different way this time. Yesterday was of course Canada Day, and I got it  in my head that it would be a great idea to take the kids to see the fireworks. By myself. And document it. Because I’m crazy.

Here’s the funny thing – I don’t even like fireworks! They are kind of boring to me, to be honest. But I knew the kids would either love them (or hate them), so I thought we’d give it a try. This would be the first time that they had both stayed up to go see them, so I wanted to capture their reactions to the event, rather than the event itself – and that’s what I mean by the details.

It starts off with them sitting in their jammies already way past their bedtimes, watching Bubble Guppies and waiting until it gets dark enough so we can go watch them (it was around this point that I was rethinking my whole master plan!). I did my best to capture their growing excitement as smaller fireworks went off in the distance, and then the actual trepidation when the big show finally began.
