I don't know what to think of everyone saying 'merica lately. Call me old school, but it's America... :)
I do know that I love this day. It is the only day that makes summer worth it. Fireworks are the best. We had plans to go sit in the parking lot of Ozarks Technical Community College and watch the fireworks from Hammon's Field, but things just didn't work out. It turned out okay, though, because we bought a small bundle of cheap and kid friendly fireworks and watched our neighbors set off their big expensive shells.
These are some photos I snapped of our fun with sparklers.
