Fourth of July - Part One

July4th10

My extended family on my dad's side is in town for the week for a mini family reunion, so we've been celebrating the 4th of July all week.  :)

We started Monday with fireworks.

Addison was terrified of the sparklers, but Hannah was all for it...

Okay, maybe all for it is a strong word.  She wasn't quite as hesitant as Addison.  She was willing to try it anyway.

In my children's defense, the sparklers we had were crazy.  They were popping and flashing and throwing sparks everywhere.  Yeah, I know, you're probably thinking, "Um...duh Rebecca, they ARE sparklers."  But These were even crazier than normal.  Hannah actually ended up getting burned.  Just a tiny bit, but we're lucky nobody else was hurt.

After sparklers, the kids were ready for the real fireworks.

Well, as real as they get when they're from Sam's Club anyway.

Sam's Club fireworks or no, a good time was had by all.  :)
