Bonfire Night

"Remember, Remember the Fifth of November,
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.."
We just had a wonderful weekend celebrating Bonfire Night with the kids and our granddaughter. Such a special time. Lots of fun, laughter, fireworks and food!

It was our first social gathering since we moved in a month ago, and, although it's a difficult time as my Dad slowly recovers from major surgery for his bowel cancer, it was truly great for us all to relax and have some fun. And I know that's what my parents wanted for us all.

Even though high winds and rain had been forecast, it stayed away long enough for us to enjoy the fireworks and sparklers. Such fun!

Grreat photos. I'm glad you were able to have a nice night. I'm praying for you all.
It was weird here, on the 5th to not hear a single firework. They don't do guy fawkes, they do fireworks on July 4th here though.
