Our Fourth of July (a little late)

We played hide and seek ..

The girls yelled, "Cheers!" ....

... and then got a sugar high off of blue raspberry slushies ..

Reese did some yoga ...

Kaelin got bitten on the ankle by an ant .. but resourceful Reese was there to suck out the poison ..

Reese got tired of waiting for the fireworks to start ...

Kaelin thought she heard them starting...

The girls put their retro headphones on to prepare for the noise ..


No pictures after that ...
Despite the headphones that blocked out 90% of the noise, Reese freaked out as the fireworks started. I had to take her under a streetlight and face her away from the show. At one point she pleaded with a bicycle cop, " I go with you?!" She was so desperate to get away that she was willing for a stranger to rush off with her.
Kaelin, on the other hand, loved the show. David said that after each burst she said, "Oooh .. that's my favorite", "Ahhh .. so colorful!", and "Wow ..I touch it?!"
Despite the drama, we had a great night ... and hope that next year will be better for Miss Reese.
