Since we were at the farm for New Year's, we got to have our own fireworks display. Grandad, Daddy, and the boys went out New Year's Eve to purchase their selections, then after dinner they created their own show.
Grandad, Daddy, and Uncle John started off with bottle rockets
Then Grandad made sure everyone had sparklers. Ethan has ALWAYS been afraid of fireworks so I am thrilled that he actually participated and was excited to see them this year!
Ethan loved it and even helped Grandad hold the Roman candles
Caden attempted to hang in there and big brother tried to be the protector(I tried not to fall over in shock)
But ultimately the trend continued and Caden decided it was much safer watching from the sun room
Love the awe on their little faces!
Then it was time for bath and bed!
Granny had mentioned letting the boys pick some oranges from the tree, so the next morning Ethan was quick to remind us that that was the first thing we had to do after breakfast.
Then Grandpa rode up on the mule and they hopped in to go see the bull in a different pasture.
After a final ride, our visit ended all too soon and we had to load up for our long drive home. I have fond memories of spending summers on the farm when I was a little girl and I am so happy to be able to share this same experience with Ethan and Caden! They are building memories that will last a lifetime.
