David lighting the first "snake"...you know, those little pellets made of ash that just "grow" when you light them. Gross. But I remember them as a kid, and sure enough, our kids all loved them!
Sparklers were a HUGE hit. I had tried to describe them to Josiah and Jacob - that they were the only fireworks the kids would be allowed to hold, but they had no concept really. Boy were they EXCITED once they saw them!
Mom writing her name in the air with her sparkler!
Jacob with 2 sparklers....
...and Josiah the Ninja (or something) with his 2 sparklers.
Chris and Kristen (the happy couple :) ). Chris was a real trooper to drive up here with Kristen and spend the weekend with all of us crazy sisters and our families!!! They started dating last September and we've enjoyed getting to know him better.
And then the fireworks show began!!!
Crazy David - just couldn't resist!
The kids found the perfect viewing spot - on top of David's car!
I think the men were getting ready to light the finale - it was quite elaborate and took all 3 of them to light them!!!
