Steve was kind enough to demonstrate a "what not to do when lighting fireworks" pose for us.
(Reminds me a lot of Grandpa Otto though with that hanging out of his mouth.) And if you notice the wetness on Steve's shirt- that is what happens when I don't remember to check the sprinkler schedule and they go on in the middle of our fireworks fun! Everyone appreciated that!
This is a picture of what happens to sparklers that got wet due to aforementioned sprinklers - They smoke. A lot.
