After the parade we all went back to our house. Cousins played outside and the adults played "Liar's Dice". How have we not introduced this game to my family sooner? I see another game night in our near future.
One of our family's favorite fireworks is the "Piccolo Pete". It's a very loud, high squealing noisemaker. We didn't have any this year, but it turns out that our children can mimic the pitch and volume of the "Piccolo Pete" perfectly. It's one of our gifts. We took about 30 seconds to let our own little Piccolo Pete's loose on our street.
Notice most of us are plugging our ears!
What a good daddy!
