4th of July

Yesterday we drove to LA to spend some time with Brad's Uncle Joel and family.  Nana and Grampapa came along also, so that worked out great because each kid got some grandparent time in their car (they  have an extra car seat in there).  We had a great time and the kids especially enjoyed the trip.  We were just getting into Bakersfield, on the way home, when the fireworks shows started.  Calvin was in our car and we were telling him where to look to see the fireworks...he saw them and was overjoyed (I'm not underestimating the emotion) at the pretty colors in the sky.  It was the highlight of his night.  He kept exclaiming with joy, "I see them, I see the fireworks!"  At one point he said, "the plop, plop, plop in the sky".  On our street he got to see some of our neighbor's fireworks and he was so excited.  And then just for fun we went and sat on our back patio to watch more fireworks being set off.  Mia, on the other hand, was not very excited about the fireworks...even possibly, slightly hesitant to like them.  But once we were home and talking about it...seeing that it was ok, she warmed up to it.  She definitely was not enthusiastic, like Calvin, but at least she wasn't scared of them.  Asher didn't really have an opinion...we'll give him another year to figure it out.
