A weekend for BBQs

We've had a good holiday weekend so far. On the 4th we traveled to Independence for a small family BBQ, then came home in time for Shawna, Justin & Drue to arrive. We had a little BBQ ourselves, then took the party outside. We didn't buy any fireworks this year, just used up the silly little stuff that was left over from last year... mostly snakes & sparklers!

Joe Dirt:
"So you're gonna' tell me that you don't have no...
Black Cats, No Roman Candles or Screaming Mimis?
You got no Lady Fingers,
Fuzz Buttles, Snicker Bombs,
Church Burners, Finger Blasters,
Gut Busters, Zippity Do Das, Crap Flappers,
Whistling Bungholes, Spleen Splitters,
Whisker Biscuits, Honkey Lighters,
Hoosker Doos, Hoosker Dont's, Cherry Bombs,
Nipsy Daisers, (with or without the Scooter Stick),
Or One Single Whistling Kitty Chaser!?"

Kickin Wing:
"No, just Snakes & Sparklers."
(I love that movie!)

Anyway, here are a few photos from Friday. It was really dark outside at the time, so my camera didn't do too well.

Chico enjoying a sparkler!

Justin with his whole package of sparklers!

It took a while for the kids to join in, but they finally would hold a sparkler



The neighbors had the "real deal", so the kids took cover under the tailgate of Shawna's truck for safety. Drue, Jaxon & Mateo...


Justin & Shawna


Yesterday Chico decided to attempt to do something with our ridiculous front "yard" area. He rented a skid steer. We'll see how long it takes for Chico's "vision" to come to be.



Now off to get ready for another BBQ today at our house!!

Looks like you had fun. I remember when I was little I hated holding sparklers :) I still really don't like them. That picture of Chico holding the sparkler was too funny, totally made me laugh :)

I thought I saw some "real" fireworks from that area on my way home from banks :) Fun fun!!

Hahaha... one of my favorite dialogs in a movie that I haven't thought of in a long time. It put a smile on my face - funny movie and that was a great scene. Hey, thanks for your comments on my blog... I'm new to this whole thing but its been quite addicting. I enjoy it a lot and am thankful that I have at least one fan :) Take care!!
