This was the first year we purchased real "fire" fireworks for the kids. I wasn't sure how they would like doing sparklers, snakes and smoke bombs, so we bought just a few to see if they liked it. We were finished in less than an hour and will probably have to make a trip into the fireworks stand again on Friday! They suprised me by really enjoying the fireworks. Looking at the last picture I just uploaded of Allie with the sparkler, I realized that it looks like it could have been me about 27 years ago! In this photo, she looks so much like I looked in a few photos when I was little!
