We didn't let this dishearten our fireworks experience in the least. If you have ever done fireworks with Mark, his family, or anyone who lives on their street, you would know that the Ellis' celebrate the Fourth of July like most people celebrate Christmas. BIG! Here is a picture of Mark and Eric returning from Bimbo's with their loot. There was also another box, bigger, full of mortars. : ) like I said. BIG.
On Saturday morning I made the trip to Bill and Beth's to help them get ready for their "throw down" Kyle's 21st Birthday started at midnight, and Beth turned 50 this year, so they thought they would really THROWDOWN! Bill deep fried 2 turkeys and smoked 4 Boston Butts. Beth and I Picked them and got the food ready for that night. I wish I had more pics of the spread, but I was running around like a mad woman trying to get everything ready, so there was no time for photos! I did manage to get one of Bill playing Corn Hole though!
I also figured out the fireworks setting on my Camera. It turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. BANG!BOOM!CRASH!POW!
The best one I captured all night long. Thanks honey, (and Eric and Joey and JT) for another amazing fireworks show. They were amazing and fantastic!
After the fireworks, Mark drove me and JT home, where we met up with Joey and Jane to hang out for a bit. We got home just in the nick of time, because it started pouring when we pulled into the driveway! Today Mark and I recovered by eating subway, watching movies and napping on the couch. Today also started our countdown to the beach! Exactly 8 weeks from today, my toes will be in sand!
