Saturday night, we spent a wonderful evening at our club, enjoying a fireworks display, to kick off the 4th of July holiday week.



It was a beautiful night to spend outside, with temperatures comfortable, as the sun slowly set. Our table on the patio had a perfect view of the golf course and the fireworks to come, as we enjoyed a few summer cocktails, before dinner. There was a buffet to enjoy, filled with picnic salads, chicken, and even prime rib.

When darkness arrived, the fireworks began and there is something about those loud booms and bursting lights that bring out the kid in us all and stir our memories of 4th of July celebrations, over the years. We remember 4th of July celebrations, from the past; sitting on blankets at our hometown parks and beaches. We still look up with wonder and awe, anticipating each beautiful display of sound and light. A perfect way to celebrate America. What are your favorite fireworks memories?

Happy Monday!



  1. What fun! We used to spend many a summers in MI watching the fireworks out over the bay.

  2. Lovely night, and beautiful a kid we used to look across the bay at the US fireworks and think what fun it must be to live over there. And then they started to really put a effort into Canada Day, and we were happy.


  3. Sounds like a fabulous evening:) Have a great week:)

  5. Looks like it was a perfect night for them too, Vicki! Summer nights are so relaxing...:)JP

  6. Sounds like a perfect summertime evening, friends, firecracker sounds and a sky blazing with color . . .

  7. Nothing like sitting on the grass waiting for dark to arrive so that the fireworks can go off! We'll be doing the same thing tonight as we celebrate Canada Day!

  8. Beautiful pictures Vicky. I guess mollie will be spending this week in the closet. She's scared of fireworks. Enjoy the week.

  9. Love your photos! I remember 4th of July celebrations on the Farm when I was young. Lots of fun memories!
