Remember, remember

Thursday was Guy Fawkes' Night, or Bonfire Night, in the UK. Guy was the guy who plotted to blow up Parliament back in 1605, and his name lives on in fireworks displays around the UK on November 5th.

We headed over with Anna and Chris to Roundwood Park, where Brent Council was putting on a big display. Blake was very excited about the adventure (and even more excited about seeing Anna-"Anna, Anna, Anna") but unfortunately when the action started, he was not happy about the loudness, the brightness, the entirety of it! He and I had to retreat toward the park exit to preserve his delicate senses. Hopefully next year he will like them more. I took a few bad shots of the fireworks but was a bit distracted to try to manage anything better than I did.

Here are also a few of Blake enjoying looking at photos on the computer this weekend. Sweetness.
