I had to work on the 4th this year, but I made it home just in time to enjoy some fireworks. This was the first year that we purchased some fireworks for Ian to do. When we got to the fireworks stand, he was amazed by how many choices and colors there were. I think his exact words were, "Mommy, look at how beautiful they are!!" He helped me light our fireworks, and then we enjoyed Leander's firework show from our balcony.
