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!
"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!?"
"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!!
