Fantasy Baseball?-NO! Firecracker Baseball!

We had a wonderful 4th of July with Susie and Josh and Kristin. We had great burgers (Josh is really getting this cooking thing down to an art), oven fries and grilled sweet potato rounds. MMGood!

Lily was not to interested in the fireworks. She instead wanted to watch- you guessed it- Nemo. Over and over and over again. She did venture into the bedroom to watch Daddy and Uncle Josh dance around the flasher signals

We got her to hold a sparkler ~finally~ only to realize it was the very last one and we had no camera. She watched a few fountains and the rest of the flashers while we called to her from the other side of the glass.

Daddy and Uncle Josh then decided to start throwing firecrackers at each other to see if they could swing at them in the complete darkness and get a hit. They actually hit a few, you could hear the tink and then the crack as they exploded. Most of them sailed through the air and landed with a blast at their feet, or sometimes close to their head.

The last game was a bright (but not so smart) idea- Roman Candle baseball, with Josh as the "pitcher" and Corey at bat. This I wish I had gotten on video. These were the fastest flying Roman Candles I had ever seen. I was able to get one picture of Corey ducking, still clutching the bat, trying to get out of the way.

He ended up with singed hair and a small burn in his shorts and lots of laughter

  1. I just want the moms out there to know that I had no idea what "fun" my sons were up to in my back yard. If you think boys grow up... well the pictures tell the story :) . Susie

    We did have a wonderful time. The only thing that could have made it better is if Dwight had been able to be here. :(
