Did you have a great 4th?
I took this! I forget who set it off, but isn’t it pretty? 🙂
We did. And today I’m exhausted. But it’s good exhausted. I cooked and cleaned in the morning, and fried chicken all afternoon with Nikki–DIL2b. After dinner, which concluded with cake and homemade ice cream (yum!!!) we had fireworks. I didn’t even have to beg this year.
I thought I’d share a few of my pics from last night with you. I’m not a great photographer, but it was so much fun I wanted to share.
Here you go–
As the darkness grew, we started seeing what #1 called flying saucers. Aliens. I started believing him until BB said they were flying laterns and everyone had seen them in a movie called The Hangover. (I must have slept through that one.)
It’s a big paper bag with a net thing inside that you light.
This was so exciting because we live in a neighborhood on the lake. And the wind was blowing.
What I really enjoyed was watching them all work together. You don’t often see people working together without a hitch. But they did. It was beautiful as they let it go. I had the hose nearby, just in case the breeze caused it to dip onto the house next door.
It lifted off and headed toward heaven. I wonder how high those things really can go?
So . . . did you have a great holiday? Fried chicken or hot dogs? Lake or stay at home? I just loving knowing how other people spend their holidays.
