We were up late last night, blowing stuff up. Only had 1 fizzle and 1 mis-fire (the artillery shell didn't go up, it exploded in the tube. Still cool, but NOT what we expected!), so the evening was deemed a success.
Note to self: next time, skip the "hens" and "roosters" (they "lay eggs".....really lame sparks shoot out the butt (hen) or mouth (roo)) and buy more lady bugs (they spark, then start spinning while sparking, then launch - look like a green ring as it accelerates off). Also buy more quads (they now sell artillery shells with stages, like a rocket. We bought quads - the first stage blows up, igniting the 2nd stage, and so forth. Each stage is a different pattern - it was AWESOME!) and less fountains. Oh, and less smoke bombs - they stink!
The kids loved the paratroopers - think Estes rockets, but with fireworks. The 2 parachutes spark and spin as they come down.....very cool looking!
I am very tired, but it was fun. The neighbors enjoyed it, too - which makes it more fun.
Off to nap now...
