I’ll bet you didn’t know there was actual preparation involved in watching fireworks, did you? Well, if you have kids there IS. My suggestion is to begin around 9 hours before show time.
Step 1: Decorate your mantel with hodgepodge patriotic decorations about 20 minutes before your in-laws come to visit. That way your mother-in-law won’t comment about your lack of 4th of July decor.
Step 3: QUICKLY realize upon your arrival that your kids are SO not going to win the best decorated bike prize.
Step 4: Consider letting this “big, scary dog” loose to somehow sabotage the competition. Step 4.5: Decide against it because…well…you’re an adult.
Step 6 (but feels like 15 at this point): Prepare a Fireworks Basket. I’ll be posting about this tomorrow! Come back!
Step 7: Force your kids to stand still long enough for a picture together…
Step 8: Take picture of you and your hot husband together. Then lean over and kiss him, ‘cause he’s just that cute.
Step 9 and 9 hours later…sit back and enjoy!!
Hope you all had a nice holiday!!
