So July 4th is upon us...we never have plans. I don't know why. We've been going to the Ridgewood fireworks for the past two years and I assume we'll be going again. We usually sit in the Kings parking lot. Better than paying and easier to get out. We end up running into Liz, Sydney and Jordan so Ethan is excited to see them and it's just a nice night. Hopefully we won't be sweating our asses off. Please, heat, break. Please..

Here are some options for you if you are looking for something to do in the way of fireworks- I stole this from Bergen Mama
