We took the kids to fireworks on the 3rd--Gibson LOVED them, Lilly HATED them, and Owen waivered between the two. The next day we went to Twelve Mile's Lawnmower races in the afternoon and had a cookout in the evening--complete with sparklers and other little firework fun.
Owen had to warm up to the idea of the sparklers. After watching ALOT of them, he decided to give it a try but then threw it down and watched it finish.
By the end of the evening he was joining in the fun, but very very concentrated while waving his sparkler.
