    Hosting an alcohol free party for a group of 18 year olds…husband drove them to have dinner in Atlantic City and they are on their way back to the house now. They will spend the night in our garage apartment . Nice to see them all dressed up for each other :D

    Tamales from the tamale lady, along with her homemade rice, beans, and salsa verde. H is watching a movie and I'll pull out a book to read.

    @lje62 - I am sure they are all good kids, but if you want to make sure it is an alcohol free party then walk around your property, especially near the garage apartment to make sure there is no alcohol stashed. I would also go check up on them few times during the night and make sure everyone is accounted for.
    My kids are 22 and 26 now. They are good girls, but when they were in high school I knew too many alcohol free parties turned into "why there were so many beer bottles" (or other liquor bottles) at my house the day after. I much preferred my kids to go to parties where there were alcohol and parents were aware, so they could watch out for any abuse.

    OK the neighbors must have spent their college savings on fireworks! It's been non-stop for hours, not the little bottle rockets but the huge booming mortars! Yes it's pretty but it's so LOUD! We still have more than two hours to go until midnight. The dog is not happy and my ears are ringing! I feel for the other neighbors with very small children - there's no way anyone could sleep through this!

    The dinner and company were great. The game was a bust. I couldn't handle it and left after the 3rd quarter

    3scoutsmom,

    Either that or one of them just got a job with a fireworks company...boxes and boxes of free samples! How does a 4th of July vacation fit into your family's schedule?
  • 3scoutsmom3scoutsmom Registered User Posts: 5,762 Senior Member
    @Tonyk ugh! free samples? Next year I'm asking Santa for noise canceling headphones!
    Did I mention that they are setting these off in the middle of the street? I hope they are done by the time DD drives home from babysitting. Fireworks have always been big in our neighborhood but this year they are out doing the professional shows!

    ^ ^ ^

    Is your neighborhood okay with fireworks set off in the street? If other neighbors think like you then maybe somebody should speak to town officials.

    I'm not thrilled with it but it's only once a year and no one wants to be a party pooper.
