so last night...

i had every intention on going to bed not seeing a single firework. corbin layed downed to go to bed at eight but as soon as he fell asleep he woke up. and so it went, on and on, fall asleep, wake up for over an hour. [and it had nothing to do with fireworks because you could barely hear any and his white noise was turned up loud] by nine thirty i started hearing some of our closest neighbors lighting fireworks off so i scooped up corbin and tried to find a window in the house that he could see them thru.

he was fascinated by them and would keep looking out the window until they shot another one off even though we could barely see the colorful sparkles in the dark sky behind all the trees! so ryan decided we should be spontaneous and drive up the hill to the muckleshoot casino so he could really see some fireworks! so we loaded up the car and off we went. at nearly ten o'clock at night! corbin was asleep before we even got to the main road but when we found a good place to pull off to the side of the road we woke him back up to so he could see the show! he loved it and would look all over the sky at the bursts of color! i had my old camera in the car and tried to take some pictures that didnt turn out very well so i may have had my pal picnik help me out with what we were really seeing that my camera couldnt capture.

{i love how you can see ryan's finger pointing to the fireworks in this one! he was so excited for corbin to see them!}

im so glad we went. im glad i didnt let, "but its past his bed time" hold us back because the look on corbins face as he watched something he's never seen before and to see ryan holding his little boy so excited to be showing him something new were priceless.


  1. I love this. My niece (2) was so in love with them! She screamed in laughed in excitement! It was the sweetest thing.

  2. i love this too! the picture with the picniked fireworks is so great, what an awesome idea! we missed the fireworks this weekend, H was too tired and recently has been really scared of loud noises. oh well, maybe next year!

  3. wyatt was pretty much petrified of the fireworks here.

  4. thanks! i think corbin only liked them because we were close enough to see them but far away enough to not hear the loud booms! at the casino they can light off anything!

  5. aww that's a great way for him to spend his first 4th! : ) I'm glad you all had a good time.
