What We Did on the 4th of July

BarbarellaWe started the 4th of July day off with Amanda and Jess taking pictures of me and Mini for our Happy 4th of July picture. Before we got that perfect pic to say happy 4th of July, Amanda and Jess ended up taking quite a few pictures of us (see how many they took on our post 4th of July photo shoot). Next Amanda’s family went to get fireworks. We spent most of the day outside until it was dark, then it was time for fireworks! The first thing we broke out were the sparklers. This year was the first year we got to see fireworks!

Mini and I thought the sparklers were neat, but I didn’t care for them too much

After doing a couple of sparklers, we did something called a fire cracker. I did not like it at all when I first heard it, I jumped and came to Amanda’s feet for protection. Then, she picked me up started hugging me and saying “everything’s alright” which made me feel a little better.

After the horrid firecracker, we did a few roman candles (a tube you hold and when lit, has balls of light shoot out of it).

When the roman candles were done (which didn’t take very long because there were only 6) we went back to the sparklers.

When we ran out of sparklers we did a few ground flowers.

After we used up mostly everything, we ended the night with a glitter fountain. We only had one glitter fountain, but it was pretty. Next year they said they are going to get more of those (hopefully they don’t get firecrackers again).

I hope all of y’all had a happy fourth of July!

4th of July Photo Shoot

Mini:We took tons of pictures trying to get the one to use for our happy 4th of July photo. Well, today we are going to show y’all just how long it takes us to get one picture. Below are a few pictures we decided not to use and some outtakes during the photo shoot.

We also took some pictures outside. It was hard taking pictures outside, we had to be looking and the wind had to be blowing the flag the right way at the same time.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! From: Mini, Barbarella, Jess, Amanda and everyone at minidatsun.com.

Happy 4th of July! from Mini & Barbarella

Don’t forget, some doggies are scared of the loud noises fireworks make. If your doggie is scared of loud noises, make sure to give them a big hug and tell them everything’s alright.

Happy Independence Day!

Have a great and long weekend!
