  • 3 yrd old. She didn't like the noise and started to cry. By the time she realized it was pretty, it was almost over.. then she cried cuz she wanted to see more..

  • 18 months and she loved it that year.. when she was 2 1/2 she actually was scared that time (it was a phase she went through that summer though.. for some reason last summer EVERYTHING scared her when before then she was fearless.. now we are pretty much back to fearless, lol).

  • 2 years old and they covered their ears the entire time; our neighbors put them off every year so we don't have far to go and also can sometimes watch them from inside our house. My boys both love watching them now and they are 9 and 4

  • We haven't gone to fireworks yet, my youngest is 9. We tried to go last year but they were rained out.

    I never wanted to deal with 3 cranky little ones being up so late.

  • My DD was 9 months the first time she experienced fire works. We were about 3 blocks from where they were being set off - in a suburban park near my sister's home where we had a 4th of July BBQ. She was so frightened by the sounds, she wouldn't look up to see them. I had to take her in the house and hold her til it was done. The next year, she was fine though.
