Independence Day

posted Jul 4, 2011, 11:32 AM by Aarons Ohtahara
Fireworks have been going off in our neighborhood well into the early morning. Last night they stopped around 130am.  I was still up, so I know!  Some of the neighbors saved the loudest for that time, how convenient.  Luckily, the boys did not wake up crying due to the loud noises.  We spent Sunday with friends and had a great time watching all the older children light fireworks.  Aaron and Conor loved the look of the fireworks, but Conor did not like the sound...so a friend had a solution to this....
Great idea and Conor loved it. He got to look at the lights and not be bothered by the noise.  Aaron was okay with the noise, not as bothered by them.  By the end of the day, the boys were very sleepy and after a bath to get all the sunblock and bug repellent off, they went to bed without any fuss at all.  They really are good sleepers, we have been blessed with this. 
Hope everyone had a great Independence Day!!  Pictures are in the photo gallery.
