It’s 4th of July again. As usual, we are hosting the celebration of the America’s Independence Day at our humble home with fireworks and hamburger sandwiches. My dear husband’s parents came over. His brother and sister-in-law did, too. Some our friends including my darling daughter’s Godmother and her daughter also came to join the celebration.
We bought fireworks from the fireworks store located just about a mile away from our house. It was about 9:45 in the evening when we began shooting fireworks because it doesn’t get dark until then (in summer season). My husband and I agreed to get a few sparklers for DD. She had fun holding the lighted sparklers until the ‘booming’ of the fireworks in the sky scared her. It was too loud for her so my sister-in-law and DD went inside the house and they played dollhouse in her bedroom.
Some toddlers like DD are scared with loud booms. Excessive exposure to loud noises can lead to a hearing problem. In special occasions like this, it is better for them to stay inside the house and enjoy playing with cousins, aunts, or other kids.
It was nice to see family and friends gathering on special events like this. My parents-in-law stayed for the night and, of course, my darling daughter was very happy.
