Even though this wasn't Ishaan's or Amaani's first Independence Day, it
was the first where either of them were awake and alert enough to enjoy
the festivities. We were lucky enough to be invited to a fireworks show near a friends apartment.
Unfortunately... Both kids were a bit grumpy by the time we got there. They were both a little sleepy and tired.
Until the fireworks started, that is!
Kartik and I caved and got them some over priced light sabers. Ishaan was convinced that he was using the light saber to make the fireworks. I had forgotten how magical fireworks can be-- especially to little eyes who have never seen them before. I enjoyed these fireworks more than any I've ever seen, I think.
