Happy 4th Of July!!

I have been wanting to post the last couple of days, but my photo program has decided not to work and I have been fooling with that since I wanted to post pictures with the posts. Some shots are ok on their own, but you can always find something to do with them.

We got up early Wednesday to go to the Rialto Theater to sign younger son up for a Disney's High School Musical Camp. They will learn the songs, choreography, and scene from High School Musical. They have professionals that will work with the kids on scene study, voice, diction, improvisation, singing, and dancing. They will do a performance open to the public on their stage at the end of the two weeks. It hold 1900 people and is a beautiful theater that dates back to the 1920's. The director gave us a tour when we signed up. I am hoping to be able to get some pictures.

Wednesday night younger son and I headed to a local car naval in town for the 4th of July weekend. I think he was kind of board walking around with me. He is ready to be able to go places with friends. I enjoy walking around taking picture. Younger son mostly waited in lines. He went on three rides and played one game. We took a few pictures and headed home. The local carnivals used to look so big to them when they were little now not as much :) One of the big reasons I made a effort to get there is I happen to like cotton candy. Fresh not the stuff you find in stores, so once or twice a year I find some at a local carnival. Can you believe there was only one bag left as we were leaving and there was a line so this year I skipped it. Something to look forward to for next year :) Although if older son goes with his girlfriend he usually picks me up one:)

Thursday I did something I have been talking about doing for weeks. I went into a town a couple over from us where I grow up. They have a great main street and have redone the whole downtown area the last few years and are still doing much more. A year or so ago for summer they put out benches that artist have painted. They are so cute. I loved them. So Thursday I grabbed my camera and parked at one end and walked up and down taking pictures of all the benches. I am looking forward to putting them up here. It is probably a good thing I went by myself. I would have made the kids sit on the benches as I took pictures and that would have made it a little hard to see the art work :) Last night I found a fireworks display a few towns over so I again grabbed the camera and tripod to practice for tonight! As I took the first picture my battery light went on! Uggg, after fumbling with the new batteries in the dark and figuring out after numerous tries which way them go I manager a few nice pictures before the end. The great part was the fireworks were at a nature park so it was really dark and the trees made a great background.

Today both sons and I went to see Hancock at the theater. I really enjoyed it. Then we went out to lunch and dropped older son back home. He is going to his girlfriends for a barbecue and then they are going to see fireworks tonight. Younger son and I headed back to the theater and saw WallE. Younger son enjoyed it, but I didn't like it as much. Now we are back home until dark then going to see the fireworks.

Hope you enjoy the weekend!
