The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday of the year, not just because of what it stands for, but because there’s inevitably good food, low-key fun, and, of course, fireworks. The Coralville fireworks offered plenty of noise and light tonight, high in the sky above S.T. Morrison Park. Here are a couple of shots from the celebration:
This one was during the finale, which featured ground-level and sky-level fireworks:
I’m always taking pictures of Steve and forcing him to model on this blog, so I thought it only fair to turn the tables and show a picture he took of me before the fireworks began.
There’s that saying: “Fourth of July, and the summer’s over.” It’s true the days are already starting to shorten, even if that change is almost impercetible, and I caught myself thinking, on the drive home from the fireworks, about whether we should develop a plan to put some plants in for Fall harvest.
Then I brushed that thought right out of my head. Summer’s certainly not over yet, and there’s much more of the tomato saga coming up this week. Stay tuned!
