So happy we did!
We tried out a new location, right on the river a few towns over, and it was unbelievably gorgeous there! We literally were on a little island surrounded by amazing views during the most beautiful sunset. Such an experience! And I couldn't resist taking some pictures, I've been dying to try, silhouettes!
(and fun) moments with our boys!
We were close too. Like, they went off on the same island we were on close. So it was loud. But Giovanni was glued to to them and Dominic was excited.
Gotta love Giovanni's position. ;) Silly boys.
On the 4th, we relaxed, put up Dominic's toddler bed, and ended up going to see the worst fireworks ever, in the crazy humid heat.
The boys got to throw some poppers and enjoy the
entertainment of the town a while though.
Someone decided to crawl under a car to get an
unpopped popper... Boys!
Giovanni got to toss some too.
We went early to get a great location, we unpacked the car (which entailed 3 lawn chairs, stroller, sparklers, diaper bag, camera bag, and two boys), and set up shop, only to have my brother call and say he has a "better" location for viewing. So, we packed up all our stuff, moved across town and reset our stuff up.
And they were a huge hit!
Our turn for sparklers! ;)When the fireworks finally started, we were so far away you couldn't even hear a boom! You know it's bad when your 2 year old ask when the fireworks are going to start, half way through the show.
