Boom, Pow

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing

I had such an amazing 4th of July weekend. My office was closed and I spent a lot of time with my boy BFF, his daughter and extended family. We did a lot of running around, ate some food, saw some fireworks, did some shopping and a big of lazing around.

I played with camera settings to shoot the firework show. I was pretty impressed with how my photos turned out.

Dinner on Monday was four chicken breast, a jar of salsa, a package of taco seasoning and then at the last minute, some fire roasted corn and black beans in the slow cooker. NOM!! It made a boat load of food so that’s what I had for lunch yesterday, along with a tortilla and some shredded cheese. This was seriously one of the easiest and tastiest meals! I can’t believe it took me so long to give it a try after seeing it posted everywhere.

    That is a great firework shot! I always try to get some good ones and usually fail. I didn’t even watch fireworks this year, but I did HEAR a lot. Hope this weekend is just as good for you!

      Thanks! I kept adjusting my ISO and snapping a few, then adjusting again. I took a lot but only a few turned out well. This year was the first time I’ve gone to a firework show in years. It was lots of fun.
