I have a bride who wants to do a long exposure sparkler shot at her July 14th wedding [HI KIM! :)], so I knew that I needed some practice and grabbed my first ever package of "fireworks." There I was, getting carded at Target.
One of my best memories of spaklers happened when I couldn't have been more than 5, at my best friend's house, standing on their front step. With this in mind, I thought it'd be pretty neat to let Isaac try them out. I knew it was a questionable decision, but figured we could just roll with it. I tried to get him to use a hand shield, a la pinterest, but it was a no go. Isaac was more dangerous with it when we tried to just get him to practice holding an unlit sparkler, because he kept trying to grab it with his other hand and straighten it out.
We finally just decided to go for broke.
Thankfully, it worked in our favor.
Ooooooh, the anticipation! I just hope we didn't start this little boys infatuation with fire too early.
I took a similar picture on my phone, which is also blurry, but I don't care. I love the look of marvel.
Also feature here.
Oh these boys of mine. I can just imagine all that they'll be getting into!
So while it may have been a questionable decision, we really were happy with the result. Isaac most of all!
