Jeff’s favorite holiday is the 4th of July. My husband LOVES fireworks. As with many of his ‘loves’, he tries to pass them on to Maya. She actually really does like fireworks, but being a little girl, her favorites are smoke bombs and sparklers. When the smoke bombs start sending out colored smoke, Maya ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs‘ and dances around in it. One particular time, Jeff set off a super smoke bomb called “Desert Storm” and Maya inhaled some of the smoke. Needless to say, there was a lot of coughing. To aid in her continued enjoyment of the evening, we got Maya one of Papa’s face masks he uses while mowing the lawn. (They help with his allergies.) So while some of the pictures may look like Maya is in a war zone, she is actually just having a ball in her Honey & Papa’s yard playing fireworks with her daddy. :-)* It has been brought to my attention that the bottom picture looks as if Maya is lighting fireworks by herself. I assure you, this was not the case. Even though she is holding Roman Candles, the only thing she held was a sparkler that had already been lit. 🙂

Fun, fun! Scuba went ahead and bought $100 worth of fireworks but had no one to shoot them off with, he really was sad. I think after we do a girl's night a boy's night full of fireworks is in order.
