|Friday we had Blaine's parents and aunt, my aunt, and some young friends over for dinner and the fireworks show.|
|I made Cucumber salad, YUM! Cut up cucumbers, tomatoes, and purple onions. I mix in vegetable or olive oil and red wine vinegar. If I'm feeling particularly "wild" I put in a little garlic! Season with salt and pepper.|
|I also mixed up a little Strawberry Dream. Sliced sweetened strawberries and Cool Whip mixed together. It's always a hit!|
|This was the sunset outside our house, isn't it gorgeous?|
|The young people: Kelly, Jami, and Chris. So glad they all came! They keep me young!|
|Aunt Olivia and Aunt Levern|
|My honey bunny, he hates me taking his picture|
|Happy Fourth of July!|
|Jami and Chris hanging on the tail gate|
|I LOVE FIREWORKS!|

I believe that the more money you earn, the less money you will spend on fireworks and the inverse. I can't tell you how many times I saw people pull up in a Lexus or Mercedes and spend $20. More often, it was people pulling up in vehicles that looked and sounded like they were ready for the junkyard that would spend $200.
I love fireworks, but I don't like to buy them. You are literally setting your money on fire! While pretty, there is NO return!
