I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th.
 
Lets tell eachother what we did for the holiday.
 
We had relatives from Fl come over to the house.  I made alot of food so everyone was stuffing their faces all day.  Then when it got dark all the fireworks came out.  We live on a dead end road so everyone was setting them off.  It was so pretty. 
 
We had a few close calls and a few burned teenagers.  I thought I had raised them better with all my paranoia when they were little. nono
 
My daughter burned a half moon on here cheek and shes 16 she should of known better.  Then she burned her thumb I think we should ban her from fireworks. skull
 

My husband loves those really big fireworks so he bought alot of those.  We had a few close calls with the teenagers putting artillery shells into tubes that were to small.  They had the great idea of setting three or four off at a time to get the BANG effect.  One tube was too small and the shells took it into the air with it.  Didn't go high enough and blew up a tree level... smhair    Pretty but to close for my comfort.  Then they set the last one off and it only went as high as the power lines and blew up.  We had all the pretty colors flying at us.  We ran laughing so hard got under the carport and they just flew into their with us. smhair
 
That was my fourth full of thrills.  How was all yours?????

We did not a thing for Independence Day this year.

We've always just blown up the block, anyway. So I burnt a Filet for myself and BBQ'd one nicely for the wife. No other burnt offerings from our house this year.

No relatives nearby.

Nothing so exciting around here. It rained all day on the 4th so I spent the day wondering if I was going to have to set up the pump to drain the basement. I would like to shoot the person who built a house with a full basement and did not put a sump pump in.

Anyway I did manage to make a nice "4th" meal of homemade potato salad, bbq baked beans, corn on the cob, and grilled some chicken by moving the grill into the garage.

Last night I took my 3 year old to see the fireworks. We parked on a country road near where they were having them and set up some chairs in the bed of my pickup. It was fun watching his reactions.

LLP,

That sounds quite exciting! I contributed to some similar antics. A couple of my friends went to a state where it's legal to buy those large fireworks, and brought ~ $600 worth back into CO. First we barbecued at my friend's house, lighting off some smaller ones, then went to the top of an apartment building when it started to get dark and lit off the large mortar-style ones. Then we took a break for the city-run fireworks, which were pretty good. Then we went back to my friend's house and had a little party. It was pretty good!
