Our celebration went very well, it continued until the wee hours with a bon fire and smores and some of my guest that live near by returned the next day for another barbecue.  I LOVE the summer!

Family 4th of July Event

Fireworks - thedamian                                                         thedamian – Flickr.com

I am really looking forward to this 4th of July’s Barbecue.  We have always had family over for New Years Eve and New Years Day – 23 years and running!  We’ve added a few more holidays since moving to Connecticut – Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve ~ and 4th of July!

Here in Connecticut, Fireworks are allowed – of course the legal ones that can be purchased in the local Super Markets and stores, which tend to be colorful and make more of POP-POP sound than the KABOOM ones seen at Fireworkshows.  Non the less, the kids ~ and adults ~ love it!  We wait until dark and have a BLAST! and, during that entire time – no pesty mosquitoes or bats flying over us!

Please remember to BE SAFE – Here are some Fireworks Safety Tips from Examiner.com
