Not I. Wife was to work today. She was up and out the door by 4:30am and she came back around 7:30. Apparently they didnt need her. Since she was going to be working till who knew when we didnt make any plans. Right now she is with our daughter at the public pool. Im not so big on pools so I elected to say here and cook them up some good grub for when they return.

Blow up stuff!!!

Not really... My dogs don't like fireworks, looks like I won't be shooting off illegal fireworks anymore.

Grill Food,
Town fireworks (can see them from my neighborhood, don't have to get involved in the traffic, Yee Haa!)

Oh Yeah, there will be some beer involved in there somewhere!

smoking ribs, drinking beer, watching fireworks with "the fam"...my wife's sister, bro-in-law and two kids. Just relaxing.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Well, we do it up real big in NY! Prior to the big Fireworks show, the family will gather and do the BBQ thing...everything goes on the grill if you want it hot. LOL.

After dinner, we will sit on my mom-in-law's patio and watch the Fireworks. Just another benefit of New York City living. You can be miles away from the chaos and enjoy the show from the comfort of home...

BBQing at my parents house then we are all heading up to the riverfront in St. Louis for the airshow and Fireworks. It's amazing to sit so close to the fireworks and feel yourself being knocked backwards as the fireworks explode. Every year it just takes my breath away. Such a beautiful sight. I love 4th of July Fireworks in St. louis. One year they had ones that exploded and said USA. VERY cool.

All of our 4th stuff is already done, so I'll be sitting around and waiting to go to work at 11PM.

Saturday night me and the wife snuck into a state park and hiked to the top. You can see the entire town of Hagerstown from the top and saw fireworks all over the city, including the big ones at Antietam Battlefield.

Sunday we wanted to try out our new little camp grill for our upcoming trip, so we grabbed some hot dogs and chips and walked down to the city park and had a little cookout. The grill worked nicely .

We used to do a whole family thing, but a housing development near my wife's grandparents put a damper on the annual fireworks there (isn't sprawl great?) and my father-in-law got married a year ago today--he always threw a big picnic but is now celebrating with his new wife in some ritsy resort island somewhere. So from now on the 4th will be whatever me and my wife do.
