Back in 2005, Andrea and I headed over to Lac Leamy for fireworks as part of the annual Casino festival. I managed a few pics, but what I am reminded of most with the fireworks is a ride on the bus afterwards. We got on the commuter bus back to Ottawa, and ended up sitting at the very back. Two young kids ended up sitting next to me, and one fell asleep on the other, with the second on following not to long afterwards, and leaning on me. Their mother came to rescue them and I waved her off, just letting them sleep. One couple took a picture of them sleeping. But when we stopped at one point, and the mother came to get them, the other couple thought it was hilarious that the kids weren’t mine! Fun night. But it all started with fireworks.
Andrea and I have gone to the Casino du Lac Leamy’s fireworks show in the past, and we’ve been wanting to take Jacob for awhile. There’s been a small problem though — Jacob wasn’t that thrilled with fireworks at the cottage. He felt they were “too loud” and while he has been getting more comfortable with them, too much sensory input can sometimes overwhelm him, particularly for noise. Don’t get me started on the loud whine of bathroom dryers on his poor little ears.
But he was interested in trying the fireworks shows, and it just didn’t work out for schedule this summer with holidays, trips, and day camps. However, we do usually try to catch a baseball game for the Ottawa Champions at least once a year. I know what you’re thinking, “What the heck does that have to do with a fireworks show?”
Well, once a month, on a Saturday night, they play the game from about 7:00 p.m. » Read the rest
