We wanted to avoid loud, crowded places this year, since we have a baby. My parents live in a quaint little ocean town on Whidbey Island. Their town has a small fireworks show over the bay on the Third of July. We decided to go to that instead of any larger shows in the city. I was still concerned that it would be too much noise for the baby. You can see here he slept through the whole thing and didn't even flinch during the fireworks show. Oh to be a baby and sleep soundly wherever you are!
