How we fourth-ed
My mom was here for the fourth of July as well. We spent most of our time at church activities--eating pancakes, having a potluck, and lighting fireworks!
At the potluck, they had some baby pools and a hose, which was basically all Nikolai ever wanted (seriously, I don't think he ate a thing!)
Someone also brought a homemade bottle rocket, which was a huge hit with everyone.
Later we all trucked over to the church parking lot to light off whatever cheap fireworks people had brought. The pyro in me obviously loved this part (I mean, being allowed to set things on fire? So fun!) and it seemed like other people enjoyed it too.
Nikolai, for his part, put the sparkler boxes on his arms and ran around being a robot.
It was a lovely fourth of July!
