Fire and Smoke

I don’t know how things work in other places but where we live fireworks go on sale exactly a week before the 4th of July.  So for 1 week we set off fireworks on the driveway almost every night!!!

The boys like to get plastic buckets from the Dollar Store and set them on fire – as a result, we have permanent marks of each 4th of July!!!

Tonight will be epic for us because Hunter has not 1 but 2 16,000 rolls of fireworks!!!  Last year he lit an 8,000 roll and it was pretty exciting but I think this will really be incredible!!!

Here are some pictures from the week so far.

We have enjoyed our evenings – neighbors come over and we all hang out!!  This truly is my favorite time of the year!!

Tonight we will have friends over for dinner and lots of super fun fireworks – the ones we do and the display that the lake puts on off the dam –  can’t wait!!

Do you light fireworks?

Happy 4th of July!
