My family decided to take the boys and the dogs up for a drive to northern Arizona to do a day of fishing, where we will spend most of the day in around 80 degree weather while people roast in 107 or higher temperatures down in Phoenix. We will stop and probably watch a fireworks display in Payson and be back home in Casa Grande by midnight.
Figured it would be a nice way to kill the day, my boys love to fish and catch crayfish with nets, as well as bug hunt up in the woods. The dogs love camping as well, I don’t mind a two hour drive each way when you have a car DVD system to keep the boys entertained.
Everyone have a happy and safe 4th of July, and don’t play with fireworks, seriously I grew up in New York where I used to light fireworks as a kid and I would never let my kids do it, my parents were CRAZY for letting my brother and I play with firecrackers, jumping jacks, roman candles and more when we were younger. It just isn’t worth the risk, too many people get injured every year.
