Because of the high temps, we didn't do any of our "usual" Fourth of July festivities this year. We headed out to Pittsboro for a picnic with some friends, but the girls were too tired for fireworks and just wanted to go home after.
Before settling in to watch the fireworks on PBS, we headed outside to do sparklers. We had a few boxes of the "old school" metal ones, and then Mr. Mike had give us some new-fangled paper-covered ones. They produced a lot more smoke than they had out in Pittsboro.
So much that a Cary Police patrol car cruised the cul-de-sac to make sure there were no illegal SC fireworks going on. Nope. Just sparklers.
