It's an interesting dilemma for parents today. Kids love watching fireworks, but the public displays can't start until it gets dark, and that means we have to wait 9:30 or 10:00 to catch a glimpse of the fireworks, and by the time we get the kids home to bed it's 11:00 or later. That's LATE if you have kids under five years old. And then Thursday is a big ole mess with those little biological clocks thrown off and grouchiness galore. What to do, what to do.
Wanna enact our plan? We're having a wild and crazy 4th of July party at home today. It keeps the kids excited and entertained, it involves legal fireworks, and you can have the young 'uns asleep by 9:00 or 9:30. See how elaborate it gets.
