1. A fireworks display.
2. A brilliant performance or display.


Tonight after shopping in Chambersburg, I realized it had been at least a couple of weeks since I’ve stopped in at Bravo Fireworks. It has been MONTHS since we’ve been able to launch a “Sky Lantern” due to the fact that I left my box of them at my Aunt and Uncle’s house in DC (I AM coming back for those, by the way).

So I stopped in. And of course I brought Ella in with me for a quick look-around. We got some great deals on a handful of items and headed home. Before going inside for the night I grabbed a lighter and we had a little fun. NOTE: when I was a teenager living in South Carolina, I NEVER thought that I would enjoy living in a state where “legal fireworks” consisted of ONLY things that had no bang. I am proud to admit that I was wrong – some of the legal fireworks we can use here in PA are TERRIFIC!

I captured a couple videos of our safe-fun tonight:
