Can I just say that although I was dreading the whole “hanging out at the lake with soldiers” plan, I actually had a great time! Soldiers+alcohol+fireworks=crazy times :-p My hubby along with his friend Bobby made 2 bombs out of the fireworks and set them off in the sandy area next to where we were. The first one was made in a plastic water bottle and it made some pretty fireworks. For the next one, they stepped it up a notch and filled a Corona bottle with fireworks powder. . . that was one loud freaking blast!!! After it exploded, they came back up the hill for beer and to light more fireworks. All of a sudden LH (another soldier) starts saying “fire, there’s a fire!” Our boys had started quite a fire out there; thankfully there were plenty of them who knew what to do and we did NOT burn down the forest 🙂 There were alot of other people out there shooting fireworks so we had quite a nice display. After we left the lake we went to LH’s place on post and hung out with him, another soldier and Mary, a fellow Army wife. All in all it was a very good night.
