Happy 4th of July! A Contest (ends Fri July 6th)! T’s first Fireworks!

Just a quick post for anyone hanging out this morning… Happy 4th of July, RMT’ers!

The 3rd of July fireworks show put on by McKenna’s on the Bay and other sponsors here in Long Beach, CA, was a show we won’t forget for a while! Truly awesome!

T enjoys his first professional fireworks display in our hometown this Independence Day Eve!

I hope you are starting your 4th off great! We actually began celebrating last night with C helping a pal out with some pre-day party preps, then we caught a bite out before heading down the street to view a great new fireworks display in our town! McKenna’s on the Bay sponsored the 20-25 minute show last night, and it did not disappoint! This was T’s first real fireworks show, too, and despite some hesitation with the noise and bigger, brighter flashes at the start, he never once looked away as long as Daddy held him tight. We hope that McKenna’s puts this show on again next year because it was awesome (and visible for FREE and close-up from several areas along our great waterfront)!

Finally, I came across this great link to the Le Top USA blog that posted a nice, tidy snippet of how to explain today to the kiddos, just in case you were looking for a quick-and-clean refresher on American History. Worked for me anyway!

Have a safe, sane, and spectacular Independence Day, RMT’ers!
