This year was the first July 4th where the girls actually enjoyed the fireworks. In years past, they've either watched from indoors where it's quiet, or watched outside with earplugs, or just not watched at all.

This time, they not only watched, but Henry had them lighting the fireworks as well. I'm not even kidding.

No big deal, right? I mean Amanda's 10 1/2 now and Megan will be 8 this month ... Perfect ages for handling fire, dontcha' think?

Halfway into the show ...

Megan: Mom, watch! Did you see me light that?

Me: Yep.

Megan: Now I can light my own birthday candles!!

Me: Uh, no. NO candle lighting. Explosives only.

I mean, let's not get carried away. Birthday candles? Puh-lease.
