After they performed, the flood gates of karaoke singers opened. I managed to sing (I wouldn’t call what I do singing) a few songs and had a great time. I apparently rocked the joint with my performance of “Ice Ice Baby” and my excellent dancing skills. I think there might be video of it somewhere but I’m working to suppress it! Even the kids got into the fun and sang a couple songs. I channeled my inner mullet and belted out Ratt’s “Round and Round” in my high pitched 80’s rock voice. All in all, it was a Birthday to remember!

Andrea and I decided we wanted to do something different this 4th and would go out to her mom’s since we haven’t been out there to celebrate the 4th of July. We first went out to visit some of my family at the lakes during the day and enjoyed the summer sun. That night we went to visit Andrea’s mom and dad in Sheldon, ND. We had brought some fireworks to light off along with some other people in town. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love fireworks and try to make sure there’s a good show. With the addition of the fireworks from other people, we had a great time. The only damper to the night was the fact that we almost started a house and a car on fire. The incident with the house was caused by this hot air balloon type lantern. You light the lantern and it’s supposed to go up into the air and burn for 20 minutes. Everything was fine until the wind took the lantern and blew it into an evergreen tree right next to the house. We were all freaking out because it was stuck some 30 feet in the air and the garden hose wasn’t reaching the lantern. Luckily, the lantern went out within a few stressful minutes without causing any damage, except that I loss five years off of my life. The car was almost started on fire due to a firework tipping over and shooting underneath the car. It created a bunch of smoke but looked worse then it was. What would the 4th of July be without almost destroying property?
