Happy 4th!!! To celebrate, this year we set up a 100 ft slip-n-slide, played yard games, and cooked up a mountain of fried food -- all followed by blasting off a buncha fireworks!! Check out pics & vids of the shenanigans!
The slip-n-slide was a hit!!
We had a little rocket ship on which to ride!
I used baby shampoo to lube up the vinyl!
These are animated gif's of the full videos!
I'm working on uploading them to YouTube!
Byrnes managed to step in a giant gob of pine tar (sap) that had recently found its way to my place on a log!
He cried in his beer the whole time he was cleaning it off w/ solvent!
Guba Dukes, in his natural state!
I was taking pics while frying up...
These chips came out AWESOME!!
This was only part of the whole batch that I made from a bag of corn tortillas that I got for less than $2.00 at Sam's Club! Screw buyin' Frito Lay Scoops! These are far better!
Byrnes is one serious party animal!
Kan Jam, yo!
We also played Frisbee Cups, horseballs, and catch w/ a Nerf Vortex F-ball!
Kudos to Kristen for having one hell of an arm!
Getting ready for blast off!
This seemed to be a fairly effective way of ensuring skyward trajectories for our surface-to-air ordinance!
Who said we wouldn't use the 10X20?? Certainly not I!
Google does neat things w pics all on its own!
Tan Santana: "Hey! What's that?!"
Me: "Oh, that?! That's vodka-infused fruit!! Help yourself!"
Santana Banana: "Awwwwllllllllriiiiiiigghhhhtttt!!!""
"Marine Adventure" Chicken nuggets and redskin potato home fries!
Endangered species have never tasted so chicken-like!
Time for more yard games!
At this point, it was just a matter of waiting for it to get dark so that we could blast off the fireworks!
Check back soon for videos of the mortars going off!
