We reached a few milestones around here in this last week. My son held his first sparkler and got to see his first fire works. My daughter went to bed before 9pm for the first time in months, but sadly the explosions made that peace short lived. And Evie got to wear her first ponytail.... kind of.
I tried to explain why we set off fireworks to my 4 year old, but I think most of it went over his head.
So we ate watermelon and steak and corn on the cob and played in the dirt and then had a little fire in the yard and watched our neighbors set off their illegal fireworks. We ended with a camp out in the living room because all the fireworks were too scary for the kiddos.
