July 4th Portland-Style, Part 2

Part 1 was all about sparklers and fireworks that didn’t make me fear for my children’s safety. Part 2 is where we moved on to enjoy someĀ real fireworks courtesy of some of our neighbors.

I didn’t have my tripod so the results of my walk around the neighborhood may, at times, be a little blurry. Let’s call them artsy.

I love the starbursts that appeared in these photographs.

And that’s a wrap for Independence day 2013 – a day that my youngest child declared at one point to be THE BEST FUN EVER!
