Once again we spent the 4th of July down in Portland with family. Unlike most years, this year the weather was gorgeous! :o)
We played yard games; watched the kids drive power wheels; set off firecrackers, snakes, smoke bombs and parachutes; snacked and generally had a lovely day!
Not only did Charlie turn 7 on the 4th of July but he also got to light fireworks for the very first time! He wasn’t too interested in them before. But that was before he used a punk… ;o)
As I mentioned, it was Charlie’s birthday but we celebrated the other June/July birthdays as well.
Every year I also take pictures of some of my favorite firework packaging. Here are some of this year’s favs!
It seemed like it would never get dark, so we started more around just before dusk. It was a good thing! We would have been there all night! We had some great fireworks this year! The Excalibur mortars were amazing!!!
