Fourth of July Fun

Last year, on the Fourth of July, we let Caden stay up to watch P.K. Park and Alton Baker Park's firework displays from our favorite little park.  It was a mistake. . ."someone" was a little crabby the next day.  So, this year, we started lighting off our fireworks at 7 p.m. so the little ones could go to bed at a decent hour.

Caden put on his sunglasses for the bright fireworks : ).

I am not sure who was more excited about setting off fireworks. . .Caden or Colby.  They have been setting off smoke bombs for the last three days. Caden says they are "fighting the pirates." He is definitely "all boy."

Caden is still a little nervous around the loud fireworks.  He said he likes the "quiet fireworks." So Colby, being a good daddy, only set off small fireworks for him.

Carter watched the fireworks from his jumper on the porch.  He was a little nervous, but never cried.

He smiled, laughed, jumped, and clapped every time another firework was set off.

Usually, we can see P.K. Park and Alton Baker Park's firework displays from the end of our driveway, but the trees have grown up so much that now we can only see the firework displays through the trees.  Lucky for us, our neighbors put on a firework display right over  our house : ). Surprisingly, the boys did not wake up; it sounded like we were in a war zone!

We hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!
