This is my Grandson holding the most powerful fireworks a four-year-old is allowed to handle. My Granddaughter refused to take a nap earlier in the day so she fell asleep while playing with friends, and missed all the fireworks.
This morning was very peaceful compared to last night. I fell asleep with the sound of, mortars, screaming mimi's, and starbursts, exploding in the sky all around me. And that wasn't from the big fireworks displays that are put on by different groups, that was by the neighbors. This neighborhood is either very patriotic, or love the sound of explosions because at every opportunity major fireworks are set off by the folks that live here.
Colorado apparently has some very restrictive fireworks laws, but that doesn't stop the folks in the Denver area that love to shoot them off. The Wyoming border is only about 50 miles away from Denver and it appears Wyoming laws allows you to buy just about anything that explodes. So Denver folks that love that sort of thing run up to Wyoming, buy all the fireworks they can carry and celebrate holidays the way they've always been celebrated.
I went to Walmart this morning and bought a few things for the upcoming trip and loaded a few of those things into the little Bronco in anticipation of my upcoming mini-vacation Monday. I also tied up the wires from the solar panels a little better so they don't flop around as much. I'm hoping I get around to installing the wireless backup camera on the camper on this trip. On my recent shakedown cruise I was too busy taking pictures and shaking things down to get the backup camera job done. There also might've been a teensy weensy bit of laziness thrown in.
The big kids, and the little kids enjoyed the kiddie fireworks show.
We managed to get thru the whole thing without setting my truck on fire.
