Last night D had his first fireworks experience. We joined the massive crowd at our local middle school to celebrate the 4th of July.
There was a band for entertainment since the fireworks did not start until 9:30.
We got there early so we could stake out a spot. To kill some time we walked around the track.
At one point we were on a mission to hunt down the guy selling the lightsabers. D saw a bunch of kiddos with them and asked for one. Mommy & Daddy of course always say yes – go ahead you can say it – SPOILED!!! Lucky for us the guy was easy to spot since he was wearing pink bunny ears.
D worked his lightsaber light a pro.
He has mad skills.
Since it was way past his bedtime we also decided – What the heck, lets sugar him up too. He ate about half a Milky Way bar, then proceeded to run around like a mad man with his new lightsaber.
Once the fireworks started he sat on my lap and kept me warm. It was a chilly evening and I did not pack myself an extra layer to put on.
The fireworks were great. I was shocked at how good of a show our town put on. They lasted almost 30 minutes and the grand finale was spectacular.
D really enjoyed his first time seeing the big blasts and loud booms. I was wondering if he would be afraid of the loud noise but to my surprise he was not at all.
Our 4th of July was fabulous. It was a late night for all of us but so worth it. I hope you all had a great one too.
