Every year we take a picture of our huge haul of fireworks. This year we went a little nuts. We bought at least one of every type of vehicle we could find, plus an enormous assortment of fountains. Then we got an entire case of snaps and piles of smoke balls. The trick is to find the perfect balance of things we can do during the day with the kids and things that have to wait until dark. One of our favorites is the "flashing signal" that creates a strobe light effect. We love to light them and then dance in front of them to cast giant shadows on the trees and walls of Grandma's house.
