    Since real flying fireworks are illegal to sell here (people go up to New Hampshire or wherever and buy them there if they can make the trip), but since i couldn't get any real flying ones I moded some of the fountain/sparkler ones to fly. By putting the sticks of stuff from inside the fountain fireworks on a model rocket engine and adding fins.

    2 went up good, 2 failed because i didn't get the fuse for the firework part lit in time, and another lit properly, but the fins were messed up so it went sideways and crahsed

    If you get them to work right though (light before they takeoff), they are actually pretty nice. You get a stream of sparks going up into the air.

    How I spent my 4th of July morning:

    I did a 55 mile bike ride in the Watermelon Ride, which was on a route north of St. Paul and went past some lakes and through some nice rural countryside. The weather was perfect for the bike ride, with comfortable temperatures and low humidity.

    These are some of the pictures that I took.

    This was a nice area around Bald Eagle Lake.




    A group shot of some of the others on the ride


    Some of the enjoyable rural countryside




    Back at Bald Eagle Lake, with more enjoyable lake scenery and sailboats


    The rest stop at the Tamarack Nature Center


    Taking a short break at Lake Vadnais, enjoying the lake view


    At the end of the ride was a picnic lunch of barbequed hot dogs, baked beans, and other items. The lunch was at Snail Lake






    Since this was the Watermelon Ride, there had to be watermelon at the picnic!!


    The view of Snail Lake

    I'm going to celebrate the birth of my country with a BANG, and some flying sharks.

    Seriously, what are Fourth of July fireworks manners? I hold off until the night of the 4th, and other people seem to do it like new year's- blast 20 billion rockets at 12.01am July 4th.

    Happy Birthday, and welcome to to the rebellious teen years, America!

    and Jones Cream Soda is heavenly. Really.
