fireworks.

super stoked for this holiday. kinda been our holiday. not really sure why but it just is...
i have a thing for fireworks. i don't necessarily want anything to do with them. okay fine, maybe a sparkler or two... but i love watching them. seriously, how the heck did people come up with these things? the colors, the designs. love it. the spermy looking ones and the super bright ones are some of my favs. oh, and the ones that have crazy shapes. i remember a smiley faced one a few years ago!
not sure the plan yet for the holiday weekend. want to see as many firework shows as possible! were gonna try to head to michigan with nick's dad and his girlfriend. but he had to work on monday... so we were thinking of other options. now he's off and we were already trying to figure out how to get to the taste of chicago. hopefully, we can arrange that for monday. would love to be downtown for the firework show. even if traffic will be a nightmare!! oy. but could totally be worth it! and this rain. well, forecasted rain. needs to make up it's mind so i can make plans! ;oP

LOVE the fireworks too! We just saw an awesome neighborhood display last weekend. They had some that made 'sparkle'noise, looked like sparklers!

Have a fun and safe 4th!!

I like the big displays but I never understand setting off a couple hundred dollars worth in front of the house. Except sparklers, I can't wait to get cute pics of the kids waving them around

LOVE fireworks. As a matter of fact, i named my very first stuffed animal "fireworks". And... my dad nicknamed me The Grand Finale when I was little. I'm enamored by the displays, too. It's amazing to me how someone can design how something is going to look when it explodes.

I love fireworks too. Almost got married on the 4th of July, but chose the 5th instead.

Aw, man, I've never seen the smiley faced one before! I love watching those things, but not in my backyard with Steve shooting them off, makes me a nervous wreck. I've not gotten over the incident of being chased by an errant firework many many years ago! Kinda like Krystn's mentioning of a tipped firework....RUN.
