I know it is a little late to be posting anything about the 4th of July but I could not resist saying something since…it was the best 4th of July I have ever had.
Living in California in a normal residential area they do not allow fireworks that can be seen over rooftops because of fear of fire. This is smart, but very disappointing when 4th of July comes around, you have to make plans to go and see a big show if you want to see the big fireworks, or there is a possibility you can go to jail if you light them off in your driveway.Here in Washington I recently found out that the area I live in allows fireworks of any size, shape, or form, making this the best 4th of July ever. Right next to us on the Tulalip Reservation they sell fireworks at “Boom City” and you can actually afford them, I know what a shocker!! you we bought a pack of 24 Mortars for 40 bucks. That was an awesome deal considering my neighbor had paid 50 bucks on one box that you light and it does a small 20 sec show…. our mortars lasted us 4 hours. I think we got a little more bang for our buck…. no pun intended. 😉
We had a small barbecue , some pie, and lots of fireworks …..
We were planning to do some damage, if any of the neighbors liked us before I was sure they were not going to be happy with us after shooting off over 50 fireworks of all different kinds !!
Though my daughter didn’t have the chance to light off one of the big fireworks because I didn’t want her to blow her hand off, she still had a great time and she did get to light a grow worm firework and a smoke bomb, both don’t explode, but that does not mean she doesn’t enjoy them.
I took some video of the fun night we had setting off fire works for the first time in the comfort of our own drive way.
