We bought fountains, fire crackers, morning glories, roman candles, tanks, a pagoda, these cool spinner thingys and "Wreckless".
At the stroke of midnight we set off our arsenal and so did every other person in Orlando. Our neighborhood was filled with people in their driveways, kids running up and down the street, the street filled with smoke. It was crazy! The closest thing I ever saw to such a spectacle in San Diego was when the Chargers won the championship in 1994 minus the fireworks of course.
The grand finale was "Wreckless". Special K set this thing off and plumes of smoke and light flew up into the sky. It must have lit off 6-8 firecrackers. When it was over the neighborhood cheered!
Not long after we could hear far off rumbles, no doubt from the amusements parks.
In the end we had 4 tanks left and decided to have a tank war. That's when Special K sustained his injury. The lighter was too hot and he could not light his fuse and so he got burned. To top it off he did not win in the tank war either. =(
mo.honey once read or heard someplace that Florida was the fifth dumbest state in America. I think it's because fireworks are legal and as I lathered in the fun of wreckless and roman candle, I felt myself become dumber. Can't wait till Fourth of July! hehe
