We got back from our camping trip just in time for our neighborhood Fourth of July parade. Every year I think about skipping it and then every year I'm so glad we went. Our neighbors know how to do holidays, especially Halloween and Fourth of July!
We picked up a few (kiddo) fireworks––sparklers, smoke bombs, snappers, champagne poppers, parachutes, tanks, and a racecar.
We leave the big fireworks for the professionals. Thursday night we went to a Springfield Cardinals game. The kids said it was the best game they've ever seen! ;) The Cardinals got an infield triple on a pop fly error. Then they finished it with a walk off homerun. The fireworks afterward were the best I've seen.
