Friday Night Fun with Chinese Lanterns

The Betties and their families were once again gathered with friends last night for dinner on the acre.
A great time enjoying one of the last cool nights in Arizona before the summer heat sets in.  Stacie's oldest daughter H. had just celebrated a birthday where they had lit chinese paper lanterns and launched them at her party a few weeks prior. She had a few left over and we just had to see it!

These lanterns gently floated thousands of feet into the air where they eventually burned out and slowly dropped to the ground a few miles from the house.

The kids loved it and the excitement even drew a few of the neighbors out to see what the buzz was all about.

We launched a total of three.  Thanks H. for sharing your lanterns with the group.  What great fun!

These lanterns were purchased online and are a great addition to any celebration you may be having.
Obviously, use common sense when trying this...fire season and windy days could pose a threat.  Not sure what your local laws are, so check it out. We live in an area where fireworks are legal on private property.
Safety first.

Have a great weekend!!!
