Fireworks in Astoria Park

Back on June 30 (hard to believe that was two weeks ago!) there was an evening of fireworks in Astoria Park.  I love me some fireworks, so as soon as I heard about it, I wanted to go!  We had a very fun evening with our friends Pete and Rebekah, and their 2 children.  The kids all really enjoyed playing together.

I packed us a dinner of sandwiches, fruit, chips and lemonade.

Our view of the waterfront.

The Hellgate Bridge.  The fireworks were set off between the Hellgate and the Triborough Bridge.

Our friends arrived-as did a couple other families they know-and the kids all had a good time playing together and being silly.

Playing with the camera...I'm NOT posting the one he took of me....!

A boat with big sprays of colored water went by a few times.

This wasn't supposed to happen, that's Rebekah's water bottle!!  :)  These sort of things happen all too quickly with 2 year olds, doesn't it?  But, on a happy note, they are SHARING!

Live music.
