"Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind, don't ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot. And there ain't any real difference between triplets and the insurrection."
~Mark Twain, 1879

4th of July Rocks Hope Island

Our daughter's fiance (husband now) is a member of Swinomish tribe. So we got to spend the 4th on the reservation where it's "no holds barred" for fire works. It'd been years since Paul or I had bought fire works in the tinderbox known as California. The kids on the other hand have never been involved in a 4th of July with all the safe and sane goodies. It was a blast!!!

This isn't Hope Island but it's pretty.




The daughter's and the sons in law to be.












Fire Safety Officer




Were you touching the fireworks?



Just a tiny bit of the spent arsenal. And it's not even dark yet.




What you can't see is the M-80 tucked in side the hot dog.

The sun finally sets at about 9:00 pm.





Because we like to mix our alcohol with our flammables.


Oohhh!



Aahhh!
