Stars and Stripes Forever

Our Fourth of July was Grand!

We made a special stop at Blackjack Fireworks to load up on some spectacular fun.  They even had bouncy play lands set up for the kids while we waited in line.  Yes, there was about a twenty minute wait to even enter the building.  It was a zoo.  I learned that people take their fireworks serious. 

We spent the evening at our friends' house where we enjoyed shrimp and veggie shish-kabobs
and a neighborhood full of fireworks.  I nearly lost a foot while I was taking the firework pictures, when the neighbor boy launched a firework that was not meant to be thrown.  While I was gazing through my lens I heard, "Watch out!  Watch out!"  Frazzled and discombobulated I pulled the camera from my eye and jumped around barely dodging the missile.  I wondered if my foot was still attached as I ran, but noticed quickly that all my limbs were still intact.  It was a close call.  Nine year olds neighbors who are firework-happy DO NOT MIX.  If I were the parent, I'd know better than to let this one out of my sight. ;)

Besides the July gloom that followed us through the weekend, we had a great time kicking our feet up!  Both of them!

Cheers to the red, white and blue!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
