The First Independence Day...I can't wait until next year. Jack was asleep by 8:30 last night, so that left us unable to go out to watch any of the really cool fireworks displays here in Atlanta. Given that Jack freaks out at the strangest of noises, maybe it was a good thing that we sat this year out.
Our neighbors pulled out their "Nuke your Neighbor" kits as Ken refers to the fireworks kits that you can buy here over the counter, and of course they made a ton of noise. Now here's the big joke on us; Jack slept through all of it, even the ones that sounded like they were ready to blast through his bedroom window. And we were worried that Jack might wake up screaming. Nope, not this child...when he's out cold, he's out cold.
The independence of our nation slipped by this year with a minimum of fuss and muss. We stayed home, safe and happy, and spent the day playing with Jack, who is now like a giant toy himself. It was a nice day, and a nice evening spent with hubby. I hope it was a safe and fun holiday for our friends and family as well.
