Where in the World? Watching Fireworks

Every year for Independence Day, we go to a local high school to watch fireworks.

When we were waiting for the fireworks to start, Emmy thought the stadium lights looked pretty.

I tried the fireworks setting on my camera. The photos I took turned out okay…but I was hoping for better!

Lily has always loved fireworks. Emmy? Not so much. She spent most of the evening with her hands over her ears, trying to burrow her little body into my lap. Maybe she’ll enjoy them more next summer, when she’s a little older.

Where in the World? On a Hayride!

Sometimes traveling with kids is a real challenge. The missed nap times, the resulting meltdowns, the whining, the identical kids’ menus at every single restaurant….

I wouldn’t call traveling with kids easy, but I’ve found that the fun times outweigh the negatives. And sometimes, the things that you do “for the kids” really turn out to be a lot of fun for the parents, too!

We took an authentic hayride in the mountains, with “real” cowboys driving the horses.

My dad came along, and couldn’t get enough of the Belgians pulling our wagon.

Lily loved the yellow cowboy boots and fringed chaps one cowboy wore.

While Emmy wouldn’t let the other cowboy hold her on his knee for our picture, she did eat plenty of roasted marshmallows!

That night, it took a little while for the girls to calm down and go to sleep!
