A Little Fireworks Fun

We made the executive decision to light the majority of our fireworks a day early here at the Ha house. The reason? The boys and I will be out late enjoying the Nashville's massive fireworks extravaganza. And what a show it will be.

The fireworks display in Nashville is consistently ranked as one of the "must see" pyrotechnics displays in the country. Shocking isn't it? This year's show promises to be the biggest one yet.

As in years past, the Nashville Symphony will be on hand to play an amazing selection of music while the fireworks light up the night sky. There is just something about watching fireworks while the listening to Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. It gives me goosebumps.

The hubby and the boy ventured out this afternoon to purchase their arsenal of pyrotechnics. They came home with a large assortment of bottle rockets, Roman candles, firecrackers, smoke bombs, jumping jacks, fountains, and sparklers. I love living outside the city limits.

My boy, who is a pyromaniac at heart, was beside himself with excitement. We had to insist that he refrain from asking us how much longer it would be until we lit our stash. Once it was sufficiently dark, the fun began.

Lucky for me, our mini show created enough smoke that walked away with only three new mosquito bites. Unfortunately for me, I am incapable of resisting the urge to scratch my itching skin during the night. That means I should have three attractive scabs by morning.

I'm off to slather some cortisone cream on my bites before I head to bed. I hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth of July!
