The Fourth of July


I have never been much of a fan of the Fourth of July. Blowing stuff up just seems sort of dangerous and expensive to me.

But Rye was exposed to at-home fireworks this year, and I'm pretty sure it was love at first kaboom.

So we indulged his new passion with such heavy hitters as sparklers, snaps, Roman candles and these ground bloom flowers on crack that spin up into the air. I'll admit those were cool.

I was hoping you'd post about the 4th and have pics of Rye :). You can blame me from now on for your child's love of fireworks....

What a great picture of Rye! I'm sure we'll be doing small fireworks when Jack gets a little older too. It's funny how kids change you a bit.

I love the 4th of July and fireworks. Iowa sucks though and it's illegal to have fireworks here...
