While we were out running around today, I picked up some fireworks for us to set off once it got dark. What better way to celebrate our country’s birthday than by blowing up a small part of it? This was Reese’s first time setting them off himself, and he got the hang of it pretty quickly. They were all fountain types, no areal stuff or explosions yet, those will come later. Joi and I both got a little singed on the sparklers, so we’re going to get a longer lighter to keep fingers further away. But the little guy had a blast (pun intended) so all’s right in the world.
