Sadly we've never done the 'big show' with our kids.
For one, not a fan of crowds.
Two, they go to bed hours before the shows start.
Three, I'm just not that cool of a mom.
However, we have shot off our own out at my parent's place in the country and watched from our backyard. The kids get excited and ohh and ahh but it only lasts for a short period of time. Perhaps because it's so late and they're tired. But one day, when they're older, we'll do the big show. Pinky swear. :)
Now when I was a kid we actually crawled on the roof with folding chairs and placed them on the peek. It was a balancing act. Just more proof my parents were crazy!!! But those were fun times because we were so close to the football field, where they launched the fireworks, that we could hear the synchronized music and announcer. We'd have block parties... yelling from roof top to roof top. Great stuff, back when child safety came second after having fun. Oh the good ole days. :)
Now go see what secret subject's have been swapped. ;)
