Morton always doors their fireworks on July 3. We've never gone before, but decided to this year. It was kind of a last minute decision, so we just took the kids in their pajamas, and parked at the firehouse, with the intention of staying in the van the whole time. But they had a fire truck out that the kids could go in, and were giving out fire hats, sticker badges and pencils, so we took our kids over, pajamas and all. :-) Then we went back to the van and waited for forever for the fireworks to start. They didn't start till almost 9:15, and by then the older two were tired and going stir crazy. We didn't watch for very long before we headed back home.
This is what Alison thought of the fireworks. :-)
On July 4th we headed to my mom and dad's for lunchwith all the Pfaffmanns. It was nice afternoon, although not exactly relaxing. After supper we came home, reorganized, and then headed to Eureka for fireworks. We have day in the same spot for the past 3 years, and it works so well with kids! We were joined by Wyss's, Hangartners, and Witzigs. We ate lots of snacks and then snuggled under blankets when the sun went down.
Eating snacks. They're probably asking for more cookies. :-)
