happy 4th

I just got done doing fireworks with my Grandpa. This is the second year that its been just us (me) doing them. This year there was one that was particularly neat. I had gone out in my pre-picked spot and set up this firework that was supposed to be a pretty little fountain. Well, I lit it and ran as fast as I could back to the porch, but somewhere along the way it must have tipped over because the entire thing went off! I caught just the end when it was all red and sparky and neat. Apparently, it looked like one of those movie scenes where the hero is running away from the bombs. My grandpa had a great time with that and couldn't stop laughing for a while. I had another one that was a seal that should have sparked, screamed and rolled across the ground. It didn't. It sat there and I worked on it for a while...but alas that stupid pink seal just sat there. Darn seal. So much fun running and lighting and running and ooing and ahhing!!! :)
