Even though I've scaled back on decorations over the past few years, I still have things for every holiday. Friday night was my city's fireworks display at a park located a half mile from my home. Relatives and friends come to our driveway to watch the event that starts shortly after 10 PM and lasts a good twenty minutes or so. I've given up trying to capture fireworks with my camera. Trust me, the display was wonderful.
The weather was perfect and Bill used a spray on the lawn hours before anyone was expected to control mosquitoes. It really worked! We don't use stuff like this often, but for an outdoor party it was great.
