Our traditional Independence Day with the Clarks was fantastic! They were able to come up to Flagstaff and spend the night and day with us. We watched a hot dog eating contest, and I decided there is nothing nastier than that, but we are SO doing one next year! We knew that fireworks in the White Mountains would have a chance of not happening since the weather has been so dry, so when Kayla and Kallam extended an invite to witness "fireworks way better than Show-Low" in Winslow, we absolutely took them up on the offer! Oh. my. goodness. I thought Show-Low was great, but now Show-Low is nothing! Winslow's show was so long that they had an intermission. We almost died of joy. I think we lost our hearing for the night, and the next day I had firework dust-junk in my eye that had me writhing all day, but it was so worth it! Oh my gosh. I just can't even explain them! We love Winslow. Next year we've decided to barbecue there, bring a truck with a in it to swim, and an air mattress to watch with. The Kruses have forever changed our firework-ing lives!
