F-Word Friday: Firecracker!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Family Friday to bring you...


Did YOU know there's a Montreal International Fireworks Competition? I did not. Now I do, and it may be a life-goal to go and see a little of it. (The above video is of the winning display in 2008.)

Thank you, internet!

I love fireworks...they're so decadently noisy. With the exception of concerts and headphones, we're always being asked to keep it to a dull roar, turn that thing down, put a lid on it... but fireworks? Better bring your earplugs, that's just how it is.

I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend... I will be at a Rockies night game, 14th row behind the dugout, rooting on my adopted home team (the Cubs will always have my heart, but a girl's got to get her baseball fix somehow!), drinking margaritas and crocheting that blanket for Craft Hope, all followed up by fireworks from the field! Hopefully the margaritas won't impact my pattern... we'll see.

Happy 4th of July!
