Summer nights

On Friday we listened to Landrush at Stump Park, an event put on by Shawnee Parks and Recreation. Later afternoon swimming only allowed us to make their second set and the fireworks that followed, but an hour of music was enough for the girls anyways. High 80s at sunset was a welcomed break from the midday heat and the slight breeze made for comfortable viewing. Capital Federal bank's blue tchotchke was a fan favorite throughout, prompting the creative conversations in the videos below. The astute viewer accurately determined that both girls are drenched head to toe from running through the sprinklers. Another video similar to the second night dancing can be seen here.

Both girls decided to dance to the music after dusk, and the led lights reminded me of previous summer concerts and sparkler dances. The firework display exceeded our experience on the 4th, where we had not planned on staying awake to attend the KC fireworks only to choose at the last minute to view from considerable distance.  No bugs, no moisture, warm weather, and easy traffic leaving the park were all wonderful.  We didn't bring the larger DSLR cameras with, so this photo is a bit lacking in comparison to any of the last three year's of firework photos (2012 photos and 2011 photos).
