Summer Bucket List – Fourth of July Fireworks

Posted by: Maggie

I’ve been absent for a while, but I assure you we’ve been busy working on our Summer Bucket List, and, you know, still getting the hang of parenting two wild creatures.

So this one was kind of a gimme. We always go to see a Fireworks show for the fourth. It’s one of my favorite parts of the summer. I love Fireworks. The last few years we’ve been going to a show at a local park and sitting just outside the park, to make a somewhat quick get away, but still be close enough to get a good show. This year, we decided to go to a different park to watch a different fireworks show from a distance. We wanted to avoid the crowds and be able to leave early if George wasn’t happy, and we’d heard that this park had a good view of the show.

Well, George was good, he nursed and then slept through the show, but Eleanor was disappointed and I didn’t blame her. It really kinda sucked, we were too far to hear the fireworks and we were only just able to see them over the treetops. We’ll go back to the other show next year.

At least George and Eleanor looked cute together in their 4th of July outfits.
