fireworks over america

Jules —  July 6, 2006

As promised, I have a few more pics to show off. Our Independence Day celebration at our home was small, relaxing (if you don’t count the traffic) and fun. Check out my gallery to see all my favorites from the holiday.

Independence Day would be a very sad affair without my beloved pyro James. I have many smoky, loud July memories thanks to him!

The kids love playing with those stinky, bizarre snakes.

Carl and Anjelia smoked it up.

The girls did artwork in the street. I love Lydia’s cat drawings.

Mike, Abby, Carl, Mary, Tori and James’ countertop guy, Roy and his family joined us for the evening.

Anjelia LOVED the poppers. She kept Tori busy handing them to her.

Fortunately, there was only one small accident!
