The 4th

Lisa came up to stay with us for the 4th. We LOVED having her here. We are so grateful to Dustin for taking Taylor all weekend so we could steal his wife! I miss her so much now that she is gone. Weekends never last long enough. Anyway, we did the kids' fireworks at about 7:30pm. Miles was buckled into the wagon so he could see the fireworks but not get the fireworks. The girlies did sparklers together and Morgan held one hand over her ear and kept the other arm straight out in front of her. She was a little wary of the sparkler, which turned out to be well founded. As soon as Elle's sparkler went out, we all hear Troy yell, "Elle, don't touch that!" followed by a earth shattering scream that seemed to drown out even the noise of other fireworks. Elle was wondering why her sparkler stopped working and decided it would be best to grab it with her other hand. She formed immediate blisters on her thumb and finger. After about 10 minutes she calmed back down and very much enjoyed the rest of the firework display put on by Daddy and Uncle Troy.
We did the bigger fireworks after the kids went to bed, since it doesn't even start to get dark until 9:30 or so. They were awesome and I think everybody had a good time!
