We spent the first part of the weekend camping with Ty, Nichole, Emily, and Troy, but made it home to pick up Grandpa from the airport and see the fireworks!
We were about 50/50 wondering if we would actually make it to dark and the fireworks.
But we went to the Arvada town fireworks at a big city park, it just took a bit of effort to get there.
The kids spent the first hour playing on the great playground.
Holden was on her "soap box" yelling to the world, "Hey people! The fireworks are here, the fireworks are here!"
Then we had lots of snacks and tickling till dark. Luckily, the surrounding neighborhoods had decent fireworks of their own to wet our appetites and hold us over to the big show.
Ev spent most of the show sitting on my back.
I can't believe how good these munchkins did! They held up for the whole thing. We bolted about 5 minutes before the end and watched the finale while walking to our car. We beat the traffic and got the kids to bed by 10:30!
(too bad they woke up at 6 the next morning!)
