The 4th of July brings out the kid in all of us. I remember going to my grandmothers house in Savanna Il every Independence Day to have supper & watch the fireworks. My birthday is the 3rd, so we'd always combine the two.  Cake & Fireworks. Not a bad birthday for a kid.  And always having the day after your birthday off has been good as an adult too!

Because it's my birthday, and I can do what I want (mom said so) I'm offering you an alternative to traditional fireworks.

Enjoy... and Happy 13th Birthday to me.
