Fireworks…I think it must have been 4 years since the last time we saw them? Since it appears that the move by the Macys Fireworks show to the Hudson River is permanent – at least for now – we haven’t really bothered trying to see the fireworks since that first year (bring it back to the East Riverrrrr!!!).
You know…I kind of forget sometimes that even at this age, the kids are still experiencing things for the first time, especially since it’s unlikely they remember anything about their first fireworks showing. We were also pretty far away that time. This year we saw fireworks in my mom’s town and we were right there under the explosions, so much so that ashes and other debris were falling on us. It was a bit scary, I won’t lie, but also really cool. Claudine kept saying “how is this happening? How do they make this?” I told her it was magic.
