1. you don't take the money with you when you go.
2. it's fun, amazing, and breathtaking.
3. if you set cash on fire, it doesn't explode, make loud noises, or burst into fairy dust.
Last year was the only year in my ENTIRE life I didn't do fireworks. This year we more than made up for it. We provided our family with a display that lasted nearly an hour. We learned more about what we do and do not like in fireworks. Next year there will be more cakes (the large boxes pictured above and to the left) and not as many artillery shells. The artillery shells are awesome, and a great place for a beginner to start, but are tedious. There is a larger delay between explosions.
Without further adieu, I give you a glimpse at our 2013 4th of July Spectacular.
