We had a pretty busy few days over 4th of July. York has their fireworks on July 3rd every year, so this year we planned to go with my family and celebrate Katy's birthday which was on the 1st. Brooks was super excited to go see the fireworks. We had been talking about fireworks ever since the firework selling tents were put up earlier in the week. There was even a giant blow up gorilla in front of the tent in the Ace parking lot, and Brooks thought that was really fun. For about 2 weeks all he could talk about were the gorillas in front of firework tents (we saw a total of 4 gorillas by tents, 3 in York and 1 in Aurora).
Before the fireworks started, the kids got to just run around and play which was a fun way to pass the evening until it was dark
In the evening on 4th of July, we went to my parents' house and played outside and enjoyed a small firework show.
