Setting Things on Fire

Yesterday, we went here... get these:

We live in a town where you can actually do FIREWORKS at your HOUSE. So, last night we walked to the local shopping center where they have temporarily erected a fireworks stand so that we could stock up for next weekend. Then, after dinner, we went in the front yard so Daphne could experience her first sparkler:

And her first snake:

She really liked it, but I am pretty sure that I was even more excited than she was. I haven't done sparklers in a long long time, because any and all front yard fireworks were outlawed back home in Texas. I can't wait to do the cones and fountains that we bought.
The down side is that fireworks are kind of messy. Look what the snake did to our bricks:

I don't think it's gonna come off. I think we were probably supposed to put it ON something before we lit it. Speaking of burning things, look what I did to my pot last night:

I put the steam basket full of corn in there, but I forgot the water. I couldn't figure out why my corn was on fire. The corn was bad and the pot is ruined. And dinner, which was an attempt at pork chops with baked beans, wasn't very good either.
But, at least there were fireworks.
Hope your weekend was good. Visitors from Texas coming today. It's gonna be a fun week!

I think this is going to be your very best 4th of July EVER! I'll be checking your blog for a picture of Daphne in her fancy parade dress. Eavie will be wearing her's too!
