July 4th, 2011

We spent this 4th of July evening at my sister Marie's house. She and her husband Nathan had a dinner where we roasted hotdogs.

Smore's with a Reese's Peanut Butter cup! Yum.

Marie and Nathan's baby - Jack. He's a cute one.

Liz enjoying some food.

Jack had a water gun and was squirting it at everyone. Here he's threatening my dad.

Om nom nom nom.

My family and a bit of Nathan's family was there. It was pretty good, then we did fireworks. Nathan had a bit of fireworks, and I also brought some fireworks to supplement them.

A cops and robbers set. The robbers sped away and the cops weren't able to catch them.

A cute turtle firework.

A laptop firework. With me being a programmer I only thought it appropriate. The first part of the firework it has some sparks coming out of the keyboard, doing one key at a time. At the end there was a whole bunch of sparks coming out of the top of the screen portion. The end was definitely the best part of it.

A haunted mansion firework. This was a very fun one. It starts out sending sparks out the chimney, afterwards another part of the house starts sending out sparks, and then a third. After that, a flickering light illuminates the mansions windows. It was a very fun one. Also, later some other fireworks set the mansion on fire and it burnt down to the ground. Luckily there was no one inside at the time. ;)

The fireworks were fun. Though with Utah's new laws permitting more powerful fireworks, neighbors would be setting off big aerials that would capture our attention more then the smaller fountains that were being set off at our get together. But it was all a good time.
