Just a side note: These fireworks were actually ones my boys lit off in our street! All the cities around us have banned the individual sale and purchase of fireworks, but we live outside the city limits of Kent, in unincorporated King County, so we are still able to have this fun. The boys were closely supervised, and there is nothing funner on the 4th than seeing my boys get joy out of lighting something off! I don't get it, but they love it. I am anticipating that in the next year or two we will not be able to do this--either King County will ban it, or we will be annexed into the city of Kent. Anyway--we had a great time and it was a much nicer time than fighting the crowds downtown Seattle watching the big professional show.
