My kids have never celebrated a Fourth of July where shooting off their own fireworks was part of the fun. In fact, they didn’t even know it was a possibility. We have never lived in a city where it was legal. We do now. They are a little excited.
We didn’t buy the ji-mongo block party pack but we did buy enough to apparently make them completely crazed about something they never even knew was done all over America. They assumed fireworks were only large city displays shot off in the sky.
I let them each pick out their own grand finale display…behold “The Fire Fly”.
This kid picked out “The Superb.” Ummm….he is far beyond what you could consider excited.
Seriously, how do you curtail this kind of crazy?
The kids and I made these sprinkley-cupcakes today…avoiding unpacking has become an art form for me.
On the menu for today:
Breakfast….Applewood Thick-Cut Smoked Bacon and Red, White & Blue Buttermilk Pancakes
Lunch…Dogs and Brats on the grill
Dinner…My Grilled London Broil with Sesame-Soy-Brown Sugar 24-hour marinade, my favorite potato salad, fresh creamed corned casserole, homemade artisan bread and homemade ice cream for dessert.
It doesn’t get dark here until about 10-ish so fireworks will not be until then. The kids will be nuts.
It’s going to be a long day.
Happy Fourth everyone….enjoy your families and friends.
