After spending the 4th of July in a county in California that didn't allow fireworks (not even sparklers) and the 24th of July camping up American Fork Canyon (also no fireworks allowed), I thought we were going to get through the summer without seeing a single firework. I was very disappointed... fireworks are a necessary part of summer in my family! Well, my parents came through. Last Sunday, the very last legal day to do fireworks in Utah, we went over for dinner and finished up the last of their summer stash. It was actually raining and very windy, which made it a little challenging, but we didn't let that stop us. In fact, it kind of made the show more exciting!
