When I was about 12 or 13 years old living in Bakersfield, California me and my family loved celebrating the 4th of July.

Like many of you out there all of our neighbors would get together and we would combine our fireworks and really throw down a great time. It's all fun in games until Jason gets a hold of a Butterfly firework.

If you don't know what I'm talking about I'll fill you in. So, all of us are out and having a great time, when it happened. I love fireworks and being allowed to light them proved disastrous. So, I lit my Butterfly firework and sent it flying down the street. That's when it worked its magic bounced a couple of times and went straight into my neighbor's bush!

Needless to say it went up and I was the only one who witnessed it burning. So I start running down the street to put out the fire when my family realized what was going on. Looking back I wouldn't have changed anything maybe picked a better firework, oh well be safe and Happy Fourth of July everyone!
