And just a little reminder about fireworks and safety. Kids love ’em – adults love ’em. But they are still launched with fire and they still explode on purpose. Keep a safe distance. With the dry weather West Michigan has had, make sure you have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher near by if one “Boom!” becomes one “dud.”
Keep those precious fingers safe, too, if you’re doing sparklers or other hand-held little gems. We snagged this photo from lifehacker.com – it’s simply a plastic cup with a small hole punched in the bottom.
Be safe – be responsible and be singing America the Beautiful at the top of your lungs! Happy Birthday, USA!
