Fireworks

I love fireworks! They are one of my very favorite things. When I was growing up in River Heights I used to babysit for the owners of Fireworks West (then it was Ralph and Mary Ann Degn). I loved going into the stadium and watching all of the special "boards" they had set up in the stands and on the field. Fast forward 25 years and now Josh is good friends with the owners and have been able to work for Al and Laurie Burns for the past 8 summers (minus the 2 he was in New Mexico on his LDS mission). It makes me proud to know that Josh has had a small part of making the fireworks that are being shot off at Romney Stadium and other venues across America to celebrate our FREEDOM! What an awesome show Fireworks West put on this year... they just keep getting better and better. I love how the fireworks are now set to music... my very favorite was when Al put Ring Of Fire by Johnny Cash into the mix. Whenever the words would say... I fell into a burning ring of fire... rings of fireworks lit up the night sky...it was amazing!
