Boom Boom Pow!!!

We had a fabulous 4th of July, as usual...and we managed to somehow keep the neighbors quiet this year. We usually have at least one neighbor complain about our fireworks display, not because of the display itself, but because of the noise. Most of my neighbors have dogs that I guess go apes**t when they hear the bangs and booms. Well, my friend Penny said it best when she said that we have to listen to their dogs bark at all hours 365 days of the year, so they can put up with us one day of the year!

This year, along with Bob and Carole, Jose's Mom and Dad joined us. We had yummy shiskabobs on the grill, a little pool fun, fire pit, and a pretty nice fireworks display, despite the few raindrops and big winds at times.

Here's a few of the explosives Alyssa and I bought...they had a sale :) - I am unable to upload the video to blogger and I'm so bummed about that! Since I was taking video, I didn't get any stills of the fireworks so, you'll have to take my word that the fireworks were awesome!!! I can't wait for next year!
