Having toddlers, our fireworks time is pretty short, and pretty early. Last year I bought about $25 worth of ground bloom flowers, sparklers, smoke bombs, and fountains. We still had more than half left over this year.
After dinner, we handed out popsicles to Alma and her bff Rory. Even though it was fully light outside, we lit some fireworks.
The kids were pretty concerned, but Rory’s grandma (and our next door neighbor) was there to protect them.
The kids were concerned, but not terrified. I think this next photo pretty much represents how they were feeling.
