This year we were able to attend a fireworks event at with friends setting up camp at a local fire department. Curtis had to work, so the kids and I enjoyed some all American Mexican food, picked up snacks then made our way over. At first Bryar was a little iffy over the fireworks. He would run and jump in my arms, but by the end of the night he would throw his hands in the air and say, "boom!"
Charli loved being able to play with other kids. She really has been missing playtime with other older kids. She enjoyed about the first three minutes of fireworks, then decides to start trying to hula hoop. I'm glad that she did because it made the greatest pictures. She is at such a fun age and still has zero care in the world of who is watching her.
The next day on the 4th, it rained cats and dogs all day. It was truly a wash out. So we took our cook out and made it a cook in. We enjoyed ribs, beans, grilled squash, potato salad, deviled eggs, banana ice cream, and blueberry cobbler. It was delicious to say the least! Even though we were not able to have our little fireworks ourselves, I was so thankful that Curtis was able to join us for dinner.
Everyone on every social media sight seems to love to complain about fireworks. But I personally think they are amazing. The kid inside of me comes out and I typically run outside with the kids to watch the bright colors fly. It is such a great reminder of how much we all love our beautiful country. Not to mention, people shoot fireworks for maybe a week out of a year, get over it because I am sure they could care less about your Facebook rants.
