This is the Most Dangerous Firework for Kids

We don't do it every day, but for some reason on the 4th of July we don't think twice about lighting a stick that burns at 2000 degrees and handing it to a 3-year old.  Maybe not the best idea!  Kids get injured from this one particular type of firework more than any other.

Summer Makes Me Wish I Was a Kid Again

Summers were so much fun as a kid, with camps, swimming, and sprinklers, and lots and lots of ice cream.
