Snapshot - Fireworks

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ At Home with Books

I took a bunch of pictures at our 4th of July BBQ party!  

Anticipation!  We had the food tent set up, the chairs and the makeshift table to light the fireworks on. Behind that was a fire extinguisher & a bucket of water. Hey, never trust fireworks, right?

The best part about this picture is I get to show you this tree!! It's a willow tree that received some funky trimming from an excavator. (See which one I mean?) When I first saw it, I was like, Wha? Why leave a tree partially trimmed like that, just hangin' out all awkward, and all? But then I noticed that it's not awkward... it's dancing!!  So, allow me to introduce... The Dancing Tree!

Cool, huh?

Is it dark, yet?

This one was so awesome, we had to check out the leftover debris:

We had a bonfire going to clean up the mess and warm up the watchers. Yea, it was chilly on a July evening. Hey, we're in the Northwest!!  (Think Forks.)

Did you see the moon?!  It came up orange & mysterious lookin' over our party.

Did you light some fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July? I'm happy to share some of our memories even if you don't live in the USA. I've thoroughly enjoyed the Canadian posts this past week. Cultural stuff is fun to share, you know?
