The fourth just isn't the fourth without fireworks. Fear not! While we tried to view fireworks on the fourth, only to find they had been canceled and had to settle for watching the Macy's fireworks on TV, I was determined this family was seeing fireworks this weekend. And boy did we ever! On Saturday of July Fourth Weekend, we drove only about 4 miles away to see an incredible display at Lewis-Morris Park. While Benjamin, didn't know what to make of it at first. He clapped his hands and cheered at the first BOOM. When the fireworks started coming fast and furious, he clung on tight to Dad's neck and then Mom's neck but still with his mouth agape not able to take his eyes off the technicolor show. When it was over, we cheered and boogied back to the car (forgot to mention with Kelty in tow). As we waited to leave the park in a boat-load of traffic, I sat back and said, "now, I feel like this is a Fourth of July Weekend."
