The word firecrackers is much more festive than the word fireworks, don’t you think? Well festive is the perfect word to describe the weekend I had. Two cookouts and three other meals with friends, a drive-in double-feature, fried okra, homemade popsicles, playing outside, fireworks from the tallest building downtown, getting stuck in traffic with a car full of giggling 20 and 30 somethings, mosquito bites. Perfection in a 3 day holiday weekend. I love holidays.
