Reply Janae June 13, 2012 at 11:35 am How did you do that fancy movie picture trick for the second picture? Love it! Reply Making it Lovely June 14, 2012 at 4:21 pm It’s an animated gif; I made it in Photoshop. Reply Janae June 14, 2012 at 4:25 pm Thanks, I just got CS6 but have no idea how to use Photoshop beyond the basics. Glad to know there’s one more really cool thing I can do with PS if I just learn how to figure out how to use it! Reply Sinead June 13, 2012 at 11:51 am What a cute gif! Her reaction is priceless.

Reply Mandy June 13, 2012 at 3:05 pm Such perfect pictures! They really sum up the feeling of excitement about fireworks! And I had those same exact binoculars as a kiddo 25 years ago. Glad to see some things don’t go out of style. :) Reply Making it Lovely June 14, 2012 at 4:22 pm Well, they may be that old! The family cabin has been in Brandon’s family for decades, and those are probably his binoculars from when he was a kid. Reply Miss B.
