Time to Celebrate Our Freedom!

Happy 4th of July!

Hope everyone is having a safe and fun filled holiday!

We plan to stay close to home for various reasons and even though our yearly firework show will be cancelled this year due to the severe drought we are having here in Texas, we are bound and determined to squeeze out tons of fun just the same.   Instead of watching those bright bombs bursting in the air, we plan to sit out on the front porch and reminisce over our favorite past shows.

Is it wrong for me to enjoy my kids this much? LOL They were precious as babies.  Full of giggles and curiosity as toddlers and the speed at which they learned new things over their elementary school years amazed me.

Now, they are young adults with hopes and dreams of their own and so many wonderful ideas for the future.   I’m loving the friendships we’re building together.  Fingers crossed this lasts for a very long time.  🙂

What’s your favorite memory from the 4th of July?  Or how about your favorite fire cracker?  Do you like the loud teeth rattling booms or the colorful explosions that take your breath away?  Or what about those stinky smoke bombs or the poppers you’re supposed to throw on the ground, but somehow always manage to pop on some unsuspecting victim’s feet?  (Not that I know anything about this. LOL)

  1. Lots of memories of good shows. The one we went to the most was at a neighboring high school that has the stadium. Now, I can see Disneyland’s from my front yard. Also have memories of my little brother covering his ears when he was little because they were sensitive to the booms, and my grandfather ending up with shorts after burning his pants with a sparkler (before the city outlawed fireworks). Good food and gathering with family and friends.

  2. We usually got to see a good fireworks show because we were at a rodeo somewhere on the 4th, but my favorite part as a kid was to save up the firecrackers and use them to set landmines in my sandbox and blow up my unsuspecting Hot Wheels cars.

  3. I love the fireworks..,not the penny firecrackers, but the big professional shows! There was one last night. I missed it 😦

  4. I love the big fireworks displays. We are planning on taking Lilly for the first time tonight.

    Some of my favorite memories are typically family get togethers. Growing up my grandmother had a pool and we would spend all day in the pool then cook out that evening and have home made ice cream and strawberry shortcake for dessert then we would shoot off fireworks.

    My idiot brothers would have bottle rocket fights in the yard after everyone else went in the house.

  5. We’ve never managed to establish a family tradition with fireworks. They’re never good enough to balance the crowds and traffic. For several years, we did small ones at home. Last year was a nice one—we were at my inlaws, sitting on a small hill overlooking a cornfield, and able to watch the Hersheypark display from home.

    This year, the inlaws were out of state, and we did absolutely nothing to recognize that today was a holiday! LOL

  6. Had a quiet holiday, watched the Boston Pops show on TV. For once, no one was shooting off any fireworks out this way due to drought conditions (an annual occurrence since 1994) and the night was silent.
