Aiden never played with fireworks before.
This will be his first time!
We went to one of the properties my company manages in Costa Mesa.
So kind of them to “take us in”
Aiden was very excited and had a lot of fun.
Aiden was more involved than I thought he would be.
He wanted to take all the sparklers.
Mommy was very surprised.
He also had lots of goodies.
This is definitely more fun than just watching fireworks.
Such great memories of being a child.
This is what I was used to while growing up.
Well, we had many more variety of fireworks back then.
But this smile is priceless.
And we all were safe the whole night.
Even though Aiden would always give Mommy a scare here and there.
The loud noises scared him a bit, but gave him more of a thrill.
He even shared his sparklers with other kids.
Very proud of him.
He left his fears aside on this night.
What a great way to end the night!
Chela was a very great host!
We made sure Aiden didn’t sleep on the ride home.
It was a late night for him – 11 PM! is that a record??
