We had our big bash Thursday night (the 3rd) because of my husband's work schedule.
Oh my... I grilled up a mess of hot dogs, hamburgers, brats & brat-burgers. I saute'd some onions and made a mess of potato salad and coconut cream pies. My friends brought baked beans and a cheese dip with chips (on the request of her son) and 2 other desserts. I made a veggie tray too. It was fun. After we ate, we all went outside (it was 90 degrees here and VERY HUMID!). The sun had gone behind the trees and it was a little cooler and the kids started jumping on our trampoline and then we got a couple of our friends on it.. boy was that a hoot!
Then when it was dark, we started lighting up our sparklers and other fireworks. My daughters bought these things called Piccilo Peets and they let off this loud shrill scream that sounds very eery! LOL My husband was lighting some of these things that will scare the dickens out of you. I think they were called Cracker Bombs. Our friends brought some others that were pretty good too. Then all of a sudden, a car came down the street... it was the police! Someone had complained. But, I know who it was because we had already cleared it with our immediate neighbors (that we get along with) but this guy lives behind my next door neighbor and he is not a nice person. He'd been lighting them all week long after midnight when we were in bed and we took it in stride. But... he had the nerve to complain about us! My husband was not happy at all, he thought it put a damper on our party especially when the police started looking around our yard with flashlights! I would think that police would have better things to do than search my yard for firecrackers! But... actually, we did have fun.
My friends said it was the best party they'd been to in a LONG time! Lots of action! LOL I felt bad but they kept saying it was fun... lol. I guess I've got some weird friends... ROFL!!
Hope you all had an uneventful day!
