On the evening of the 4th, we stuck to our own family tradition of lighting some smoke bombs and waterfall fireworks in the driveway, and letting the kids do sparklers. I love this picture that I captured of my husband and my son putting their heads together to plan out the next firework to light, while my daughter ran around with her sparklers.
Later that evening, some nearby fireworks were going off (really big ones) that we were able to enjoy from our backyard (thank you neighbors!) and several groups of military jets flew right over our house (on their way to the stadium of fire), which was SO cool!
I love family traditions! What are your 4th of July traditions?
