That night, we went to our friends Dani and Colby's house for a BBQ and homemade firework show. The food was amazing! Dani is quite the little cook and she found tons of ideas on Pinterest that made our BBQ extra cute. She was so sweet to make veggie skewers for us and tons of yummy treats and drinks. After we were stuffed and the sun went down it was time to start the show!
Ryan and Colby drove all the way to Evanston Wyoming a few weeks ago to buy illegal fireworks for the 4th. With all the fires we've been having in Utah, I was a little nervous about the boys using them but it turned out great! Not only did they have the awesome "aerial" fireworks, but they also made their own "cherry bombs" with empty plastic bottles and gun powder. They are quite the little pyros!
We laid comfortably on blankets in the grass while the boys lit up the sky. I lit a roman candle, and my favorite firework a "ladybug" and of course the girls did sparklers. There was a lot of booming and we are semi-deaf, but I'll take a homemade firework show in Utah over a sweaty Arizona show any day! Thanks again to Dani and Colby for the awesome night. We just love you two!
