Fireworks & French Fries

Over the weekend, our community had their Home Days and Daddy & Mommy headed out for the night.  I had to stay at home, which I am ok with since they can trust me now to be alone in the house. 

Mommy wanted to show you some of the great photographs that she took that night.  She uses a Nikon D40 Digital Camera and it captured some truly awesome photographs of the fireworks.  Click on each photo to see how truly beautiful the photos are as it enlarges them for you to view. 


Daddy and Mommy took their chance on trying to win me a stuffed toy (Thanks for thinking of me) at this water balloon game.  You had to shoot water into the mouth of a Tazmanian Devil that blew up a balloon and the first person to get their balloon to pop, won a prize.  Mommy & Daddy both tried to win me a prize to bring home to me, but in the end, they ended up spending $6 and got nothing.  What a rip off those carnival games are!  I think that they are rigged and the operator of the game picks who they want to win.  Didn’t that guy know that Daddy & Mommy were trying to win me a prize?  If he did, he would have let them win.  Grrr, I don’t like that carnival guy!  Thanks anyways to Daddy for trying real hard to get me something, as he is always surprising me with new toys.  (I love you Daddy – You’re the Best!) 

Home Days was crowded with a lot of kids, figures, as it was hard to get around with the mass groups standing around talking & texting on their phones.  But we did get the chance to run into a few of our friends and neighbors.  We also ran into this nice guy named John.  John works for our city and is the nicest guy around and has replaced our mailbox that was damaged by the big snow plow trucks and even the mailman who hit it once.  John told Daddy & Mommy some funny stories of the kind of calls they get and he said that this one little old lady called them to her house to remove a “rock” that someone got in her driveway.  When they got there, they saw that the “rock” was more like a pebble in size and they laughed. (they removed it, of course)  And then someone else had the great idea of what to burn in their fireplace.  They figured that who wants to go outside for wood in the winter, soooo why not just burn your Christmas tree (your WHOLE Christmas tree) in the fireplace!  John said that this person just stuck the top of the tree in their fireplace and figured that while it burned down, they would just keep pushing it into the fireplace and burn the whole thing up!  Well, that is not what happened as you could guess – – their house caught on fire!  This guy wins the stupid award of the month for this stunt! 

There were so many things to look at our Home Days, lots of vendors, lots of food, perhaps the next Mayor was even there air brush painting t-shirts, some very loud bands were playing, but the best part of Home Days was Mommy getting to spend some quality time with Daddy.  She loves Daddy so much and hopes that he knows that in his heart that her love grows for him every day. 

I hope that you have enjoyed all of Mommy’s photographs, and I can’t thank her enough for helping me document my life through her photos.  Take time for your pets every day and make sure that they are happy, just like you go through life with your significant other – make them happy too!  They are who bring the happiness into your life.  Make sure they know that you love them as life is too short!  Even the simpliest gesture of time at Home Days with the one you love, can bring happiness to the heart.
