We took Micah to see the 4th of July Fireworks in Evanston yesterday. We were a little worried at first, since he’s never ever seen or heard fireworks before, but we decided to go anyway. There’s got to a first time for everything right?

The fireworks were scheduled to start at 9.15pm, which is sort of Micah’s bed time. So to make up for it, we let him nap a little longer in the afternoon. The timing worked out pretty well. We set off from our apartment a little after 9pm and walked over about 4 blocks to the Lee Street Beach, which is just a little south from Clark Street Beach where the fireworks are launched.

It turned out to be a pretty good place to watch the fireworks. We were far enough so that it wasn’t too loud or frightening for Micah but at the same we could see most of the fireworks pretty well. It was a nice cool night and the beach wasn’t very crowded. Micah seemed pretty engaged for most of the show and didn’t fuss at all, even on the walk home.

He did end up sleeping pretty late that night. I guess it’s ok to let him break his schedule once in a while. It’s a national holiday after all…
