Fantastic Fireworks....

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. As you know, I was headed toward the Marine Lake in town for the annual British Musical Firework Championship Event. Its set over 3 days, usually two shows per night but this year we celebrated 10 years of the show (and I'm proud to say I've attended every single one, lol) so it was extra special with all the previous winners attending. So on Saturday we had 3 sets.

OMG, Friday was soooooooooooo cold my poor mum had to go home before the show even started. She was BLUE. I had Elly wrapped up in huge coat and a blanket but I thought my fingers were going to drop off lol. Still, I was not going to give in to the cold and stayed to the end and it was well worth it. The two shows were absolutely fantastic.


Saturday was almost as bad. We got soaked to the skin. The rain poured down but it didn't stop people venturing out to enjoy the shows which again, were totally breath taking but.... Sunday... oh Sunday was perfect. The weather was fantastic, calm and warm and clear as a bell and the fireworks were the best I have ever ever seen in my life. What a fantastic end to a great weekend. I'm so lucky we have this event in our little town.



I still don't know who won though I have my favourites. I am attempting to upload some of the videos I shot to YouTube but they are pretty BIG so I may not be lucky. That would be such a shame because I would love for you to see just why I get so excited. They really are spectacular.



Anyway. If they upload ok, I'll edit this post with a link. Believe me, you won't be sorry you took a moment to pop on over and have a look.

*Edit* Well, I promised you a link and here it is. I hope you enjoy this little segment and I do mean 'little'. This was just one tiny part of just one of the shows on Sunday night. I just couldn't get any more on without editing the film and I just ain't that good hehe.

Ok. WOW, well the DAD's are proving popular and I'm so thankful we managed to fix the problems in the end. A huge thank you to our Michelle and to Lori over at SAS who was a star coming to the rescue. I hope and pray we have ironed out most of the kinks but as with most things, that is never really possible is it so please bear with us. We are trying our best.
