  18. We have no family other than the 5 of us within 13 hours of where we life. Our temps are always close to 100 and there are no cool breezes, there are no firework shows because of high fire threat, so my fav thing to do is stay inside and enjoy the air conditioning. See there is a bright side.

  23. When i was younger it was fireworks, for sure. But I love the BBQ/ family time more now that I'm older. I still enjoy a few fireworks, but I hate how many fires and injuries are caused by them each year. Plus, it seems like a lot of people waste ridiculous amounts of money on them. I guess I'm a party pooper that way, lol.

    I also feel bad for the service men and women who have flashbacks when fireworks go all night. :-(

  34. I love a parade! My MIL lives right on the parade route for a fairly large suburban parade (it usually lasts about an hour and a half!) We arrive before the streets are closed off and grandma and grandpa, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all hang out and set up the perfect viewing spot. With easy access to cold drinks, snacks, bathrooms and a place to cool off it couldn't be more perfect!
