4th of July

Yesterday was a day of celebration and lots of parties among my friends!! I wanted to make it to each one, and Dave and I relocated among our friends' houses and went to bunches of different gatherings. In the afternoon, there was a pool bbq that was lots of fun. I got to go swimming and sit out in the sun and eat yummy food that Stephanie grilled. Then, my great aunt came to my house with catered food we all hung out for a bit there. Then, off to party #3 at Martin's house. He had a really neat outdoor brick grill going where the food was cooked on marble slabs and it was so cool. They had the most variety of food, but I was completely stuffed by that point. They also had vodka soaked fruit with chocolate dipping sauce!! After that was the night time fun - with fireworks. I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but I'm really not a fan of fireworks, and actually slightly afraid of them. I did opt for sparklers though, and held a few as they, well, sparkled. The boys (and Stephanie!) then had a grand old time blowing up bigger ones in the middle of the street as I sat far away with my hands over my ears. What can I say, I'm a great addition to any party! ha.

The night before I went to see my city's firework display and that was cool too, but again, they were loud and bright and the ones that just go up high and make really loud noises and bright explosions just don't do it for me. Eyes closed, hands on ears.

This is the only (semi) successful picture I was able to get of Stephanie's lovely (ha) firework display. Oh yeh, fireworks are illegal in NJ. Just thought you should know that.

haha, your fireworks situation sounds exactly like me and my friend erica. all we would touch were sparklers, and she even watched from inside the car at some points to get away from the noise.

sounds like you had a great 4th!

I'm afraid of fireworks too. I thought I was the only one! lol when I was little and our neighbors would shoot them off, I'd hide in bed with the covers over my head crying. Love you!

Love Forever,
