We had a blast this 4th of July!
We enjoyed the day at our neighbor's awesome BBQ and we ended the night all kicked back on the curb in front of their house as our husbands set off the newly legalized fireworks! Who knew that when I walked into Target the day before the 4th I would see packages of fireworks! Of course we grabbed a box and found out another friend did the same. So what else is there to do with all these fireworks but put on a show for all the kids?! :)
It was so sweet to watch the kids stare in awe as the colorful fireworks went off right in front of them. Took me back to my childhood growing up in Brooklyn watching the fireworks go off on my block as all the dads set off colorful ones as well as very loud M80's. While I am not sad in the least bit that the M80's didn't become legal I am so happy that Jade will be able to enjoy the sparkly pretty ones.....at least for this year. She even got to use sparklers for the first time!! Always a childhood fave! And while we don't know how long this new law will stay at least we will have some photos to look back on for years to come!
Hope everyone had a fun Fourth of July!
