The boys were in charge of lighting most of the fireworks. One of them tipped over (one of the fireworks not a boy) and was shooting sparks, etc. at us! This happened a different year, too. The last time it hit Susan, but it didn't hit anyone this time, just scared us! :-/ :-)
Then when we were almost done, Robert was lighting a sparkler (for one of the boys). But then all the stuff that was on his lap (other sparklers, etc.) lit!!!!! He threw it off his lap so fast! We were laughing after that, but for about four seconds we were all so scared!! After that, Susan, Trisha, Scott and I went in to play spoons. Andrew joined in for a game or two later. Then we all went home and went to bed. Well, not all of us...
Trisha and I stayed up until 4:45 watching movies. And talked probably until 5:30. When we saw the twilight streaming through the doors, we figured that maybe it was a sign we should go to bed! :-)
` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `Well, these are the top four pictures. Keep in mind that this is the first time I have attempted firework pics. But I gotta admit, I cropped some on the last one. :)
