4th of July

I realize I’m over a month late on this post…better late than never, I guess.  Reuben got to enjoy his first “Red, White, and Kaboom” 4th of July celebration at Liberty Church this year.  It was a VERY hot day so we spent the first 1/2 of the evening staying cool in the gym.  Once we went outside, we were prepared with a battery-operated fan with water mister, bug spray, and ear plugs.  Reuben did beautifully until he got hungry right before the fireworks started.  We went inside and found a quiet place for Reuben to eat and then came back outside to catch the last 5 minutes of the fireworks.  He was completely unamused with the fireworks.  The loud booms didn’t scare him and the bright lights didn’t interest him.  Oh well…I’m sure he’ll be much more excited next year!

His burp cloth is apparently more interesting than the huge fireworks display above his head
