I hope you all had a great week and have something super planned for the 4th of July holiday weekend.
We’ve have now settled into my in-laws house for the time being. Nico is having a blast hanging out with his grandparents daily. He especially enjoys when his two cousins Cam (a couple of months younger) and Hailey (a couple of months shy of 3) come over for play time.
Grandma & Grandpa are definitely happy to have all the kiddos around and mommy & daddy get a little break, okay, mommy gets a little break. LOL.
With the holiday weekend upon us I’ve been thinking about taking Nico to the beach and having him enjoy the 4th of July fireworks display. We haven’t decided if we’re taking the little one to see the fireworks show.
First, I don’t want to scare him with all the noise. Although I’ve gotten him used to noisy things, I try to make a party about running the blender, the vacuum and anything noisy so he doesn’t scare easily, I think it has worked, but fireworks are a different story.
I’ve thought about letting him watch some YouTube videos with fireworks if maybe that will give him a better experience if we decide to take him.
Secondly, since it gets dark pretty late now, it will be past his bedtime. He could be super cranky but nighttime and NO ONE will enjoy any fireworks.
I do think we’ll be having a simple & casual BBQ with the family to celebrate with lots of healthy snacks, especially a juicy watermelon, which I plan on cutting into little stars. I found this easy DIY on Weelicious, they call them “Fruit Wands”, certainly better than what I would call them.
What are you doing with your family for the holiday? Got a any special activities planned? How did your children react to their first fireworks display? Let me know in the comments below.
Have a Happy 4th from our family to yours.
