Fireworks! and facepainting

We had fun last night.

I only had 3 though as Joshua had to go to my parents house he got in big trouble and we decided that he couldn't come.

We went to the fun center first which is in the same place where the fireworks are done, on the waterfront. The girls really wanted to get their faces painted here they are getting them done.



Kenzie of course picked out a pretty purple and pink design that went well with her dress she was wearing. Kenzie wouldn' t like it if she didn't match you know....








Madison is all about the blues and purple and hers was actually my favorite










And after gettiing their faces painted........

At the fun center the favorite treat every year is the food! The kids all like the Elephant Ears the best. I don't like the name but they are a tasty treat!


Of course your probably all wanting to see if I got any good fireworks shots. I was excited to try this with my new camera that has a feature for taking pictures of fireworks. It did pretty well actually I was pretty happy with it. It was a little harder to do though because you have to hold the camera up for awhile for it to work right. What do you think?

It was a late night especially after school and work all week but we had fun. This is the girls by the time we got home...
This I have to say is one of my favorites of Madison right now. Look at the look on her isn't it adorable!
And this one is really cute of McKenzie
And what happens at the end of the night with some very tired kids.....
Izzak is totally gonna hate me for posting that one!!!
And for the finale on this post?
The Grand Finale of the fireworks of course. The first part is part of the regular show but about 30 seconds in is where the finale starts and it was a pretty good show. Enjoy............

Loved all of the pics. Good job for putting your foot down on the naughtiness!! The face paitings are great, and the fireworks are gorgeous!! Great captures!!!

Susie PSU said...

Great pictures, and I agree, good for you for sticking with a punishment! They have to learn by us teaching them.

Heather said...

Looks like you guys had a wonderful time!

Oh, I so luv McKenzie's & Madison's - facial - they are so cool.

Did you try - Mum?

Hey, amazing photo's and video of the fireworks - so what a great time you all had - as the kids show (including Izzak).

Is that Joshua in the back looking sorry for himself?

Cool pics! Aren't fireworks the coolest. I don't think it matter how old you are or how many times you have seen them they are cool!!! Looks like you all had a good time. We have family that lives in Portland, I will have to ask if they went.If we get out there I will let you know and we will do lunch!!!!

ChrisB said...

This sounds like a great time was had by all. The face painting photos are really cute, and so are the sleeping trio but yes Izzak will not appreciate that one being shown to the world. The firework display video was awesome I love fireworks, you got some really good still shots as well. It's good you got to see it one more time before you move.

The pictures are so cute!! Looks like you guys had a great time. It's always a bummer when one has to stay behind because he/ she was naughty, but it's a good lesson, good for you, sticking with it!!

Kila said...

Thanks for sharing the fireworks. And the face painting was pretty cool. Have they washed it off yet? ;)

Emma in Canada said...

I love the face painiting! They look amazing. The pictures of the fireworks turned out really great. Can you email me when you have some time and tell me whow to do a picture like that. I know you and Beccy fo it all the time, but I just can't figure it out.

Jocelyn said...

The carseat photos are hilarious!

You know, I don't remember getting my face painted as a kid--when did it become such a thing, I wonder.

HeiressChild said...

hi terri, beautiful pics of the children in their face paint, and the fireworks are spectacular. your camera captured those beautifully.

Debbie said...

It sounds like you had a great time! Love the girls' faces. Beautiful.

And the firworks pictures are awesome!!!! What kind of camera do you have and how do you do that??? I've tried taking pictures of fireworks before and it never works out.

Beccy said...

I love the butterfly faces, so cute.

As for the fireworks, I'm very jealous. We only have one display a year in Ireland and this year it was cancelled due to bad weather.
