Independence Day

For the fourth of July we just hung out at home and relaxed. We have been so busy running around lately because of my brothers little league all-star tournaments. We didn't even go out to watch any fireworks or buy any fireworks to play with at home. (It was raining anyway!).
However, the next day we went over to our friend's house to celebrate. Some of our other friends went as well. So the house was full of people eating, and talking, and having a good time. Later on, after everyone had eaten their fill, we all went outside. The guys began sorting through the fireworks and getting them ready to set off. Of course it was still a little too early to set them off yet, so we waited for it to get dark.
But, lately, it has rained every evening. And it was threatening to do so. When it got dark enough and every one was situated in their folding chairs the show began. And it was quite entertaining. There were numerous, uh, mishaps and somewhat hazardous situations. In short, there were many examples of how not to set off fireworks. But it was fun! I could even feel little pieces of the fireworks falling on my head sometimes. There were sparklers, roman candles and smoke bombs, just to name a few.
But why don't I just show you how much fun we had? Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
