4th of July Fun!

We had a good July 4th and I hope all of you did as well. Nothing to exciting really, mostly cleaned out the garage- definately necessary and since Steve was around, I wasn't passing up the chance! It feels so much better. And since it rained all day we really didn't have anything better to do. However by evening it cleared off and we were able to have a little bit of fun... here are some pics of that...
Steve was kind enough to demonstrate a "what not to do when lighting fireworks" pose for us.
(Reminds me a lot of Grandpa Otto though with that hanging out of his mouth.) And if you notice the wetness on Steve's shirt- that is what happens when I don't remember to check the sprinkler schedule and they go on in the middle of our fireworks fun! Everyone appreciated that!
This is a picture of what happens to sparklers that got wet due to aforementioned sprinklers - They smoke. A lot.
Jackson doing his sparklers also.... Pre sprinklers obviously!
I had taken more pictures of our fireworks display/contest, however, a point and shoot camera just really doesn't capture the awe of the fireworks. Its mostly just blury squiggles. It could be operator error too. It usually is.
