2010 Fourth of July

This was Aiyana's first year watching fireworks on the Fourth of July (Clara's too for that matter). Aiyana has seen fireworks at other places, but never of this magnitude. We went to Tumbleweed Park in Chandler and had a great time. My mom and her friend Al met up with us. We laid out blankets, ate and watched a couple of bands that were playing in the park. Aiyana thought it was fun to have us chase her around the crowd for a while, but she settled down after about an hour of running around. Once the fire works started, Aiyana quickly jumped in my lap and clung to me tightly. She never cried, but once in a while a big firecracker would go off and she would bury her head in the crook of my neck. It was precious. Both Aiyana and Clara fell asleep before the show was over... it was WAY past their bedtime.
