Fireworks

I am such a sucker for fireworks. Luckily my city puts on a nice display every year that can be seen from my yard. While I don't have grandchildren, some of my nieces have young children so a new generation of firework fans joined my family and our neighbors a few evenings ago. The young voice heard in this clip is one of my three year old great-nephews.

Mother Nature has been providing fireworks of her own lately with many thunderstorms. Fortunately, we have not had power outages or wind damage, but many in Michigan and throughout the US cannot say the same. Warm, dry weather is predicted for this coming weekend which begins with July 4th on Friday. I am already planning food and clothes to pack for a weekend at a nearby cottage on the lake with another great view of fireworks on both Friday and Saturday!

My outer shell may be aging, but I am still a kid at heart!
