My 4th of July Memories

When I was growing up you were allowed to have fireworks in your own backyard. And at my house we always had fireworks on the 4th of July. We each got our own sparklers, and all of our friends came over to celebrate. Phil and I still watch the fireworks every year – it just wouldn't feel like Independence Day without them!

What are your memories of the 4th of July, and how do you spend it now? Tell me about it in the comment section below.
