4th of July

We bought Ru some little snap pops to play with for the fourth of July. She's not generally into loud noises so I was surprised at how well she did with them. She wasn't very successful at throwing them, but we figured out a way that worked for her. (esp since she was wearing the cowboy boots)

First you put the snap pop on the ground.

Then stomp!!
Always keep water handy when using fireworks. OK, so there's no way a snap pop would start a fire, Ru just loves playing with the squirt bottles.
Daddy wonders "what's in these things, anyway?" He didn't believe me when I said rocks and gunpowder. Anyone know?

We didn't do anything else for the fourth, our little town holds off on the fireworks for the old fashioned festival the last weekend in July (and we watch from our front porch) and we weren't invited to any picnics or anything (or inclined to try and host our own). It was nice to just hang out at home and relax.
