  • Sophie was great, a little bit crabby while waiting for fireworks, she was tired and it was too loud to nap, but she loved the fireworks! We thought she might be scared, but the noise wasn't bad and she just loved the bright colors! She is 9 months.

  • My kids loved it, but they are 8 and 5. When my oldest was 6 weeks we took him to the fireworks!! I really don't know what we were thinking. I was young and stupid. But he did great, slept through it too.

  • I really wanted my son to see the fireworks this year, but it was going to be too late, and he was ready for bed, after the whole weekend being off schedule. I'm hoping next year he can see them.

  • It was Jack's first 4th but he's almost 1. His birthday is next week.
    He had a blast. He played outside in the backyard almost all day and then when it got dark the older kids put him in his stroller and sat in the front yard to watch the neighbors set off fireworks. He never cried but got too tired to stay out there before they were done.
