A good ending to a good day
Since I refuse to fork out 63 dollars for the "privalage" of going downtown and viewing the fireworks,and they are never actually on the 4th, plus they don't usually start until 10:30 or so, I try to buy the kids plenty of smoke bombs, snakes, and sparklers for their enjoyment. All the while, I am missing the fun we used to have with bottle rockets, spinners, firecrackers, and a host of other things now considered dangerous. This is always the highlight of the day for Kristen. For some reason she loes to play with fire. Maybe because I won't let her even look at a match or lighter most of the time. Kristen kept begging to go out for the sparklers and finally at 9:00 it was dark enough for the sparklers to work. (I remember being anxious as a kid for darkness also). What a way to end a very busy and relaxing day.
