What I Learned On The 4th of July

On the 4th of July we went to a cool party thrown by one of my co-workers.

There were HUGE fireworks, some of them possibly not street-legal.
And I learned that when one of them goes exit stage left instead of up in the sky, Mr Sunshine State hauls his cookies behind the nearest large truck and Little Miss Sunshine State hauls her cookies toward the backyard.....

No one gets a decent picture of the Flaming Palm Tree.

I've also learned that when setting off illegal fireworks in Virginia, it's best not to do so near someone's new BMW convertible. Luckily, it was the Beemer's owner who did the lighting and not us, but still...

Oh yeah, a little scary when the fireworks don't shoot UP, isn't it? Glad you got away okay!
