Pyro-Porn

Well, my in-laws fireworks tent has been up and operational for a couple of weeks now and we are narrowing our selections. This year the tent is being single handedly manned by my young nephew who is way too knowledable in all things pyrotechnic. God help us, if for any reason, this boy's loyalities stray from this country!

The latest trend seems to be towards what they call in the biz "cakes". Simply put, they are fireworks shows in a box. Bundled rockets and mortar-like explosions all neatly contained. Just light the box and RUN! If all goes well then they all go off in sequence...if not...oops. (We had such an incident last time, no one got hurt, but it was pretty intense.)

I was amused by the names they give these cakes. What a great job-coming up with the titles of these things! (To check out some more cool cake titles, I've found the Brothers site to have the most amusing ones.)

How could you NOT pass that one up??!! It's gotta be a must have! Nephew reports that "Munitions Dump" is truth in advertising!

This one caught our eye..


A popular one around here, duh. Nephew says it's quite good, actually.

And of course, we have to have this one!


The girls got their usual "goody bag" picked out.


We don't have our official 4th of July until after the tent closes for the season. But it's always dangerously fun! The neighbors hate them.
