Happy 4th of July..

digital atc.. images and backgrounds from multiple sources
hope you all are having a great weekend..hope your 4th is full of fun!
Our city's fireworks show starts at 9:20 tomorrow evening..the fireworks are set off in the park DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE!!! Imagine that!!! I don't have to pack up stuff,trudge around with a cooler and chairs. Nope...just walk out my back door and take a nice comfy seat!!! If i run out of wine or whatever...less than 10 steps!! Then,when it's over..as everyone else fights the traffic..I just step inside and shut the slider!! The only drawback..our 3 dogs are scared to death of the noise...the BOOMS will shake the ground and are very loud!!! The cats hide under the furniture!!!  My poor babies..!!! The price they pay for mommy's great seat at the yearly fireworks show!! We usually enjoy the fireworks with my friend across the stret,my kids,her kids and their spouses!! It's such fun!!! My husband isn't big on fireworks,so he stays inside with the animals....and he'll watch my littlest grandson,who was scared of them last year, and my granddaughter if she gets scared.(she was last year!)......however you spend the day..have a  marvelous time!!!      HUGS!!                                                                                                            .

I'm not a big fan of fireworks but we see some from our back deck.
Happy 4th to all. Hugs

Dear Ann,
Sounds like a really fun time. I wish I lived close to the fireworks displays. I dont go because of the parking and lack of space to sit and enjoy..But my childhood memories are stored in my heart for the Fourth of July BOOMS!!!
Enjoy my friend!!!!

Hi Ann! Yep, most of the dogs in our family are afraid too. Firecrackers and Thunderstorms! I will probably watch it on t.v. Have a great evening!

What a lucky setup for this holiday!!!
Have some wine for me. My diet this year means it's out for now. Which means sugar free root beers instead are what I tote.
Happy 4th to you and your charming household!
Rose
