We didn't do much over the 4th. Audrey kept talking about seeing the "beautiful fireworks" but she doesn't get that they don't happen until after dark. And I know that she could never keep her peepers open til 9:15 to see them. I could just see us with our blanket spread out in a park somewhere with her passed out by 8:30.
We went to see Cars 2 over the weekend, and the Disney logo that they show before the movie with the fireworks going off over Cinderella's castle was as close as she got. Oh, and then there was the $2 box of sparklers that I got at Walgreens.
Even though sparklers are the lowest form of firework, I was still worried about her burning herself. I kept telling her not to touch the end, and made sure that I handed them to her so that she could hold them from the very opposite end from the sparkle.
I imagined her putting it too close to her face and getting a sparkle in the eye, or throwing it in a bush and starting a tri-state wildfire. Don't ask me why, but never in a million years did I think that she would smell it. What, did I just show up here?
She created a very festive look for herself. Because nothing says "Happy Independence Day" like a spent-sparkler-Hitler-mustache-welt...
