Enjoying JaNewary 2014 Fireworks
Again the family chose to spend our New Year with my in-laws in Gensan. The kids (well, also us) wanted to see the fireworks. It was a week-long vacation for us, my wife and I arranged our schedule weeks prior to our trip. It was our first time to see the latest addition to our family, our nephew "Bingbong". And with all the food prepared by my in-laws, it was like Christmas when we got there days ago. But what the kids were really looking forward to was opening the gifts waiting for them.
Then after roaming around the city, the big day came... New Year. We all watched the colorful firework display in the terrace. Though we enjoyed the scene, we were also watchful for firecrackers flying nearby and see to it that all the kids were secured and safe. We all had fun since we don't have them back in our place. But it's not like we regret it, it's better to have firecrackers banned rather than be in the hands of irresponsible people. At least now, we had almost no casualty for the past years.
We stayed in the terrace for as long as there were fireworks (so as to say that we really missed it). But as the smoke already filled the air, the kids went to bed... it was a long day after all. While me and my wife, had some midnight snack before hitting the bed (it's too hard to resist the food).
A simple, yet fun New Year celebration. I hope 2014 will be kind and generous to our family as that of the past year. New hope to look forward to... new obstacles to conquer... new life to face... And may the good Lord bless our family with good health, togetherness, and things we needed most.
A happy New Year, everyone. Yahweh bless.
