We watch fireworks every year, but I think this is the first year that my kids have actually experienced fireworks.

Bad Mommy!

Well, really, bad Daddy! He likes to poo-poo our potential fun all the time!

We watched the town's big fireworks show the Sunday before, so it was just a day for hanging out, eating, and waiting for dark. We surprised the kids with a few simple fireworks.

Sparklers were a big hit, of course!

A sparkler duel!

These next two pics crack me up! I caught them both jumping in mid-air after hearing the "explosion"!

Waiting for the "explosion"

Tank races

More sparklers!

Love their faces! Daddy was showing them poppers. Simple fun.

My little firecrackers!

The day wouldn't be complete without a visit from the Firecracker Fairy! Thanks to my friend Tracy (and her mom!), I have known the FF for many many years! A got a neat wooden bead bracelet-making kit and L got a Superman dvd.

Oh how fun! And all of these baby pictures are seriously giving me baby fever!! We did a few small fireworks this year. The mosquitos are terrible so we had to act quickly!
