Then it was on to a BBQ at our house. The kiddos diverted themselves with the pool--Lucy dove in head first, sundress and all. The boys were happier just dumping water on eachother. The big boys played with fireworks and put on a great show. Lucy didn't seem to mind them. Benton was OK until a loud noise a little too close for comfort sent him over the edge. He was so traumatized, he actually fell asleep to the sound of the "bombs bursting in air" in the same room as his crying brother. Amazing. Soren wasn't fond of the noise either, but watched in delight from safely behind the window in Benton's room. As soon as the fireworks supply was exahused, we all cleaned up as quickly as possible and headed off to bed. It was late--like 10:30 or something crazy like that.
