Happy Fourth!




Posted by Picasa

For the past two years, my friend Amy has told me every aspect of her family's Fourth of July Celebration and how fantasitic is was, etc and how the firework show was the main attraction. After hearing about it for the past two years, this year she invited our family to go! We normally do not do much so we welcomed the change. My sister came into town from Georgia so she was able to tag along with us. We drove about an hour to Huntland, TN to this beautiful home on the lake. There were many of Amy's family and ward friends there and it was nice to see her family again. When we arrived, there were six men in the field setting up for the fireworks show. Forrest was quick to offer his services to help! He'd never been around os many explosives before! They set up for the show for more than an hour. The food was straight out of a Southern Living magazine. Aewsome! After we ate the kids play badminton and then it was time for the main even to start. The men, including Forrest, took their positions at on of the three stations and began to set off the $800 worth of fireworks at the same time. The show lasted about 30 minutes and was absolutely fantastic! Our family had a blast and the best part was that Chris and Amy invited us back next year!

It sounds like you had a fantastic time! It may become a tradition for your family on the 4th. Glad everyone had a great time.

Wow, $800.00 on fireworks? It MUST have been an exciting show. Sounds like it lasted longer than the Callaway Garden's show this year.
