On Saturday we went to the annual Taylorsville Dayz celebration, where we met up with a bunch of friends and family to watch the fireworks. We always joke that Taylorsville blows their entire city budget on fireworks, and this year was no exception. The fireworks were fantastic! And we can walk to them from Chris's parents house, which makes them super convenient.
We tried taking Emme to fireworks last year but ended up sneaking out early when she started to howl. I think they were a little too scary for her last year, and frankly too late at night. This year she did much better! She got a little nervous when the fireworks first started, but Chris and I snuggled her right up in between us on the blanket and she relaxed right away. By the end she was clapping and yelling "yay!"
We can't wait for next year!
