Our 2nd Fourth of July as a Family of Three

Since Colby had to work on the 4th, we decided to light off some fireworks with Caden on Wednesday night.  Caden was extremely excited about his "(f)ireworks" until he figured out what they did.  After lighting three small fireworks, we decided we should stop lighting fireworks unless we wanted to pay for Caden's therapy later on down the road.  Since Wednesday, he has been telling everyone who does or doesn't mention fireworks, "(F)ireworks-scary-scared-loud-don't like it."

We usually walk to Alton Baker Park to watch the Freedom Festival Fireworks show, but decided that it was a long way to walk if we had to immediately turn around because "someone" was scared to death.  So this year, I didn't think we were going to watch any fireworks.  That was until my oldest kid Hubby came home from work and asked, "What are you doing?!" (Blog snooping. . . ) He was as excited as a little kid, "We can see the fireworks from our house!" So, instead of walking FOREVER (with a toddler who obviously doesn't like "(f)ireworks"), we watched the fireworks from the end of our driveway. . .how perfect?!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!
