The 4th

We had a blast (excuse the pun....I couldn't resist myself) at the Brown's on the 4th. Jason has some serious pyro brothers. If you don't believe me....take a look at the picture below. Ben's favorite holiday literally is the 4th of July, that's just how much he likes fire. It sure does make it fun for the rest of us! Jason got a couple boxes of free fireworks from the people that have a stand in their shopping center, plus Ben and Myles went and bought a bunch too. So....we definitely had our fair share of fireworks. And the ladder trick made it spectacular....don't know the ladder trick? Oh, just look below, and your 4th of July's will forever be improved.


Ben planning out the show. We told him we would like it choreographed to music next year.




Love the sparkler in the mouth.




She liked the show. No pictures of Ellis....he was sleeping or eating. :)




So, here is the ladder trick. Two ladders and a board...you get the idea. I'm telling you it makes a world of difference. You feel like you're watching a legitimate firework show. You get the shot up and the twinkle down. Now I'm sounding like the obsessed one....but seriously, it's really cool. Try it.

"We had a blast"...hahahahha. Dang, I miss being a pyro on 4th of July. The big shows put on by the city here are rad but there's still that missing joy of blowing them up yourself. You guys had so many fireworks and that ladder idea is genius. Norah is getting so big too, it's crazy. Anyway, can't wait to see you guys in August when we can ride the tube.

Well, there's a set coming in bro....gotta hit the surf.

Later on dudes

I don't think I've ever seen or done the ladder trick. Looks awesome. I see how having pyros in the family makes 4th of July a blast.

In Washington, they have fireworks that are illegal in California. They have tons of fireworks that shoot into the air, Roman Candles, and all kinds of scary things. I screamed in surprise when Graham first lit a Roman Candle in my direction. So apparently, if you want a show, the Northwest has the best fireworks..
