as it got closer to fireworks time, jill and the kids came by mom and papa's place to gather up everyone and head out. jill was much too eager to see ledger, so she woke him up from sleeping so he could join us- his first fireworks! he was a bit groggy at first, but quickly joined in the excitement. we've never woken him up during the night before, so this was a very special treat! we headed down to the beach where we had put the chairs to save our spot earlier in the evening. the kids got to do their usual pre fireworks fun: sparklers!
