Fourth of July, Celebration?

I really love the fourth of July. I love celebration, I love remembering, I love fireworks. But then I had kids. Last year Emily and Hannah hung out inside with Auntie Pammy, while Bryan and I got to let off fireworks and have a great time. Yesterday, as we were getting in the car, Emily heard a firework go off and has been COMPLETELY afraid of fireworks since then. Everytime one goes off she yells, "mommy!!" And hides under her blanket. So I'm not sure how much of a celebration we are going to get this year. I hope she starts to get use to them. But am really sad that she is SO terrified of them already.
Hopefully I can convince her that fireworks are fun, or else I'm going to be spending the night in house. Wish me luck!

Oh Thanks! Yeah, apparently it wasn't that bad of a quake and Ryan and I finally got through to each other.
My mom on the other hand was worried. She's in Arizona and couldn't get through for a while. We do have Utah numbers, I wonder if that also makes a difference. Hmm... It was just a lot scarier in the moment. I've never been in an earthquake. :-)
