This is my forest
(yes--that is ice on the road--this was taken in January-
was the only one I could find--sigh)
This is my forest after fireworks--
On the bright side--we didn't have to mow weeds there last year. And it all grew back.
We did have a great 4th though. Sadly, my husband was at work--up in Alaska--at Prudhoe Bay-they don't do fireworks there. Something about sparks and all that oil I think. And my daughter Kelly is in Fairbanks, Alaska vacationing with friends. They don't do fireworks there either--its light almost 24 hours a day in the summer. The reason I tell you this is we bought another whole box of fireworks to set off when they get home--stay tuned--the nightmare just goes on and on. For the record--I could go the rest of my life without fireworks. I am always overruled by the pyromaniacs I call my family.
So here are a few more photos chronicling our 4th--

Sarcasm and humor aside--
I am very grateful for my country and love to celebrate my freedoms--I am blessed--
hope everyone had a great 4th!
