It rained and rained on Independence Day this year. I was certain that we would not be able to shoot off our own fireworks, let alone be able to watch the show that the city puts on each year. It was just too wet. However, the rain let us in the afternoon and everyone ventured out into their yards and started blowing things up. We did not actually buy any fireworks this year. Andrew had bought a huge box last year and then was too tired to shoot them off. I sent him some money for them and we blew them all up this year. The pieces were all very nice and Thank You again Andrew for leaving all this with us to enjoy this year.
Wyatt and Andrea both enjoyed the spectacle. Wyatt learned how to snap poppers and Andrea wanted to try everything, but she was too small. We grilled hamburgers and sausage, with all the usual side dishes. Leroy and Jackie came over to help us eat it all. I was lucky and able to send a lot of stuff home, so there aren't very many leftovers.
