Hope your Fourth of July was a good one. Ours was quite the extravaganza. Having picked up some “safe and sane” fireworks from the Moapa River Indian Reservation (outside of Vegas) we were set for a sparkly, noisy, and bright Independence Day. We set off ground blooms, snakes, Roman candles, Picolo Pete’s, sparklers, fountains, happy lanterns – every safe pyrotechnic item known. Bright were the smiles. Everyone’s inner child was brought out. Our little one learned to be safe around fire. Good food, great drinks, great weather, and a great fireworks show!
