I was pretty sick on the 4th of July this year, but we decided to take the kids out for a little while anyway. We spent $10 on fireworks and off we went. Kaitlyn loved the fireworks! She laughed, jumped up and down, and was happy as could be. Joel and Alyssa screamed and wanted to be held the whole time. I decided to throw Joel and Alyssa in a swing to keep them happy while Paul and Kaitlyn did the fireworks and then everyone was (mostly) happy. Oh well, maybe next year we will all be able to enjoy the day.
