Happy 4th!

Hope you had a fantastic 4th!!
 Captain America Dakin--I made his shirt from this tutorial I found on Pinterest.  I was happy with how it turned out!  The silly face is his 'mirror face'--the face he makes in the mirror when we carry him to the bathtub.  No, he doesn't think much of himself at all.  Eye roll.  :)


This 4th was also a first (see what I did there!? Oh, I kill me) in that we did sparklers for the first time with Dakin.  He LOVED it.  This is something I have been planning for years, but we just never did.  A huge grin lit up his face the whole time as he requested different colors and had fun waving the sparklers.  Definitely one of those top ten memories. 

No other fireworks for us, though...Dakin has this massive noise phobia that will occasionally lead to tears and demands to be taken somewhere he deems safe, and it is usually so hellishly, bibically, devilishly, who-opened-the-portal-to-hell hot warm here at this time of year we have never tried a real fireworks show.  But the sparklers were enough for us this year.  Awesome.

Everybody likes sparklers! I wish I had some kids at home to do them with. (I feel a little silly standing outside by myself playing with them!)
