Apparently this is what it looked like in the movie.
Ours looked a little more like this:
The police were out in full force as there were probably 200,000 people in the area to watch the fireworks. We lit probably 30 of these into the sky and there was lots of shrieking as two got caught in a tree, one went rogue sideways and almost hit a house, and some shot so high into the sky you could barely see where they went. Before we knew it, the sound of a helicopter was above and we were the direct recipients of a huge spotlight from overhead. It made about 5 laps around with the spotlight trained on us before a police cruiser showed up. By then, we had already lit all of the lanterns into the sky. We feigned innocence, and they went around the other side of the house to talk to the owner. Apparently, Offutt Air Force Base (20 some miles away), was panicking about what the lanterns were and what they were doing in the sky. You know you had a successful evening when you manage to scare an Air Force base and no one gets in trouble.
I was decked out in my red, white, and blue, being all patriotic and stuff.

We ate some delicious calamari and pizza, had a drink at our favorite bar, and called it an early night.
Said delicious calamari.
We rounded out the weekend like we always do at Amsterdam Falafel and Kabob.
They always have the prettiest flowers on the tables.
So that sums up our exciting weekend. What did you do?
