Guy Fawkes Night & Fireworks – November 5, 2012

Yesterday was Guy Fawkes Night in Great Britain and each village school hosts their annual fundraiser with centered around a huge bonfire and extravagant fireworks display.  They sold popcorn, hotdogs, jacketed potatoes and other treats.  Naturally they didn’t serve beer, wine nor mulled wine so I think the rest of the family was a bit bummed 🙂 The kids were extremely excited to get to attend despite the wet weather but mother nature was on our side as it didn’t rain during the two hour event.

The fireworks were really great.  Soren and Maebh were shocked when they went off and both immediately went into shock screaming and crying.  Soren was fine as long as I held my hands over his hat and ears.  Maebh refused to look at them and finally came around but only after a long while.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
