Twenty something with toddlers

Free firework show in my backyard.
Told Sean to come watch.
Then after 5 minutes a group of 20 teenagers came running down the sidewalk.
Sounded like the running of the bulls.
Then a few neighbors came out.
They were mad.
It takes a lot of guts to yell at teenagers in your night robe.
Then more neighbors.
Then the cops.
These were some first class illegal fireworks my friends.
And very enjoyable when it's not your teenagers!
Told Sean it's nice to watch from afar and have no responsibility.
Not our kids.
Didn't wake up our kids (amazing).
Not old enough to feel disrespected.
Maybe we could just stay twenty something with toddlers and babies forever?

Yep, you had the perfect vantage point, visually and age/responsibility-wise.

Lol! Yes, that would be a good time to freeze life I think. Well most days. And yeah, I must admit sometimes when I see a group of teenagers causing trouble I get all annoyed and then realize I have gotten old :)

:) That would be nice. I see teenagers like that, and I wish I still had that bit of my life. The carefree playing that went on was priceless. But then again, these moments now are priceless.
