Phillips and his Ring of Fire
Stone's grandpa Ricky Phillips is my brother-in-law and he has shot
fireworks every 4th of July as long as I've known him. So his son
James came by his love of pyrotechnic honestly.
I can remember when James and Haven were as small as young Stone here
and they always loved shooting firecrackers and roman candles and
sparklers. He would light sparklers for them and they would run around
the yard jumping and laughing uncontrollably. The looks on their faces
never failed to light up my face.
Both James and Haven have grown up and moved away so we don't have
the pleasure of watching the kids first hand, but he always remembers
to take pictures to share with us.
