Crackle, Sizzle, Pop!

There were more than fireworks popping on the Fourth of July this year!!

As I mentioned before, our family was getting together with Kate and Charlie's family to celebrate this July 4th and I must say that the evening was a bang!

We arrived at their home a little later than expected since poor dear hubby was stuck with on-call duty for the weekend, and he had gotten a call about the same time we were headed out the door.

We arrived at their home around 5pm and all the kids immediately got in the pool.
Soon after, we got everything together for dinner and sat down to a wonderful meal of chicken, brisket, sausage, beans, potato salad and a scrumptious fruit salad.
Just like the potato salad that I had made, Kate's fruit salad was also a recipe that had also been carried down for generations, and I can tell ya that I've never tasted a fruit salad so good!! Good cooking must run in their family, because the meat that Charlie had made was also very yummy! He even mentioned that he's won a few awards during some of the cook-offs that he's participated in, and I can see/taste why!

Not long after finishing dinner, and at the top popping sound of hubby's first beer of the evening, he received a call again to go into work.
Charlie volunteered to ride along with him and to see what it is that hubby actually does. So off they went.
This gave Kate and I a chance to talk more and get to know each other a little better. We sat out by the pool while the kids laughed and splashed around and we sipped on our Liquid Berry Alcohol Concoction that I brought out for us to enjoy. The drink was such a hit with her, that I'm thinking about patenting it.. LOL!

We talked and we talked, and found that we have more in common that we had originally thought. We talked about the lifestyle, things that got us into the lifestyle, polyamory, our sexuality and just about every topic we could think of. There was never a moment of pause, and the conversation flowed very easily and freely.
The guys returned about an hour and a half later about the same time as the sky was turning to dusk.

They live a little out of the way where it's not quite the country, but nowhere near a big city. It was very nice and peaceful and I felt right at home as the crickets and the bull frogs began their evening songs.
The guys gathered up the fireworks that they had accumulated and set out a plan of action on how they were going to set it all off.
Kate and I refreshed our drinks and got settled in to watch the show as the kids were hovered as closely as they could to their driveway to make sure they didn't miss a minute of firework mania.

Kate and I continued to talk throughout the fireworks display and at one point she had gotten up to refill her glass and when she returned, she stood behind me. She stood there for just a moment, and very nonchalantly glided her hand across the top of my bare back and stopped on my shoulder.
What shivers coursed through my body at the slightest of movements by her! Her skin touching mine was very innocent but at the same time, very thrilling.
I reached my hand up towards hers, and we clenched our hands together for just a moment as to not draw attention to anyone who would think otherwise.
From this action, I knew that Kate was as into me as I was into her, and I was THRILLED!!!

At one point, we were both looking up into the sky as the colors were shooting across and she commented, "The fireworks are beautiful, but not as beautiful as you!", and as she did this, she wrapped her arm around my waist and pulled me closer to her side.
I could not believe what I was hearing.. here is this gorgeous gal with the best personality and she thinks that I'm beautiful? HOLY COW!!!
I think I actually had to pinch myself for a moment to see if I was really awake!

The evening ended with plans to see each other again on the 17th, if not sooner. Oh.. I can't wait to see her again, and away from the prying eyes of children!

Hubby and I discussed the possibility of Kate and myself seeing each other, and he gave me his full blessing to pursue a relationship with her.
All four of us get along great, we have many commonalities, and our kids even had a blast playing together.
He told me that this is what I have wanted for a very long time, and he's happy for me!

Ooohhh, how I can't wait to see her again!!!
