A Family Bonfire Night and Sparkler Safety

Bonfire Night 2014

Every bonfire night there is a big display literally across the road from where we live.  We could stay in the garden, or even the upstairs bedroom and watch the fireworks, but we always love to go over to the field to soak up the atmosphere too.

Bonfire Night 2014 Chair Swings

It is organised by Milford Haven Round Table, an organisation that I have blogged about a few times before.  There is free entry and they accept donations in a bucket, which all go to good causes and which we are always happy to give.

We were a bit sad that the Waltzers weren't here this year. It's nice when there are rides for the older kids and adults too - the Disco Twists also go down well with my lot.  However, the kids enjoyed the chair swings...

...and a roundabout ride.  Sadly there were also no Teacups or Ladybirds for the younger kids this year.   But we had lots of fun anyway!

Then it was time for the Firework Display.    They always put on a marvellous display set to music.

Being in a dark field with four kids, I couldn't switch to manual and take good firework photos.  I had to just make do with auto mode and one handed photos!

I always think it's quite a funny tradition that we now stand in a field and watch a firework display all because Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament.  However with a display next door, it would be rude not to!  I do miss the bonfire they used to put on though.  One local village actually made a bonfire out of the Houses of Parliament- amazing!

After the fireworks, we went home for crafts...

...and sparklers, which every year I swear I will not do ever again.  I spend the whole time barking safety orders at the kids and really do worry about them.  Again, I couldn't concentrate on photos, as I held Izzy safe.  They are pretty though and Izzy loved spelling her name with me holding her sparkler.

Bonfire Night 2014 Hot chocolate drink

Then we came back inside to warm up with a delicious  hot chocolate and peanut butter chocolate cakes.  



We made this video of our Bonfire Night too.  Sorry for it being quite dark and full of spinning rides!  That kind of sums up our night though!

I hope you had a lovely Guy Fawkes night.  Have you already attended a display or are you waiting until the weekend to celebrate?
