Home of the Free, because of the Brave

I'm kind of excessively patriotic. I don't know if its because I'm an Army wife or just because I LOVE America and everything she stands for. My husband has been in the army for 9 years and has served in Iraq and Afganistan. Since coming back he hasn't been able to be around fireworks anymore because of the sound, smells, and color reminds him of the roadside bombs he was in... (unfortuant reality of war)  Needless to say for the past 6 years fireworks haven't been a priority for the 4th of July. But I have missed them so much.  Watching a great firework display with a beautiful choreographed soundtrack strikes a chord in me that brings tears to my eyes. It has been 6 years since I have got to watch a display close enough to hear and smell it. I was fortuant so to say my husband was gone for training this year(not so fortuant for that part), and the kids and I got to enjoy two marvelous firework displays!! Yay!! I think this should hold me over for another 6 years :)

Happy Birthday America!!! I hope everyones 4th was filled with friends and family as well!!!

Lewiston, Utah July 4, 2012 Fireworks

Yeah I'm pretty sure I will be good to go for another 6 years after these pictures. I loved every second of it!! I still have the 24th of July celebration fireworks left this year. I can't wait to get more pictures!


  1. AMAZING! I've tried to capture fireworks through a lens before and I haven't been able to do it right. I love your photography style!

  2. It's not one of the easiest things to do but totally worth it when you get it down! Thanks Curtis for your feed back I'm glad you enjoy it!!
