Sparkley Sparklers!

We weren't sure if Hallie would enjoy fireworks this year or not so we decided not to keep her out late for fireworks in case she was frightened by them (it doesn't get pitch black dark here until about 9:30!). We did, however, decide we'd try some sparklers! She wasn't too sure about them at first, but kept close to us as she watched them burn. She decided the safety of her little Kangaroo Climber was the best place to watch! After her bath and bedtime routine, some neighbors behind our apartments were shooting fireworks, so we stood on the balcony a while and watched them. We could also see some of the city fireworks. She enjoyed them for a few minutes and then she was done and ready for bed! Jonathan told her that in a few years he would tell her all about why people shoot fireworks on the 4th of July and what they're celebrating. I bet she can't wait! ;o)
