I have always loved the 4th of July. This year my parents came and we were so happy to have them here. In rained buckets and did not feel like a holiday at all. Chuck had to work. Of course. The parade was canceled and would have gone right by our house. Too bad. I bought a pack of "fireworks" at the grocery store. Apparently real fireworks aren't legal here in Ohio. All they did was smoke! It was the strangest thing. Luckily the kids didn't know any different and thought they were pretty great. The adults just laughed at the lame smoke.
This was out grand finale. We pulled out the sparklers.
My parents both thought the fireflies made for a better show than our "fireworks." I'd have to agree.
