Our July 4th:
We started our evening with a picnic down in camp of bbq chicken and red, white, and blue parfaits. Doug got off work and we headed into town to buy a few toddler friendly fireworks to shoot off with H before he went to bed. His favorites were the snap dragons and he would giggle after each one. The other ones that Doug lit, Henry watched with big eyes from my lap. After every single one, he signed for more. He was very fascinated with what was happening, even though he had a very serious look plastered on his face the entire time. Some of the neighbor kids came over and showed Henry what a sparkler was. Maybe next summer he will be big enough to have his own.
It was a pretty special family celebration. I sure did not mind having H sit so still on my lap for so long!
