Fireworks with friends

We got together with Chad's family for a 4th of July BBQ, and Grams made this patriotic red, white, and blue trifle. Yum!

4th of July

We didn't see any fireworks on the 4th of July, but we did go with friends to the Laurel fireworks the following Saturday. Molly loves fireworks, and spent most of the time with expressions of amazement on her face.


We weren't too close to the fireworks, but they were still loud. Leah was not a fan of this. Fortunately, she mellowed after a few minutes, and decided to enjoy watching them while covering her ears.

Loud fireworks

Leah even decided to take her hands off her ears after a little while (as long as they didn't get too loud).

No hands

Most of the fireworks ended up bringing a smile to Leah's face and a gasp of joy to Molly.
