It’s nearly dusk & fireworks will start soon. For being out so far away from Seattle you’d think there would be nothing but sparklers. But ever year, somehow, fireworks start going off in all directions — big ones that often fill the sky. I really don’t know who can afford such things, but it’s more than one person or group!
Jake doesn’t mind the noise. It starts 2 or 3 days before the 4th, and continues 2 or 3 days after. Loud booms that feel like something slapped the top of your roof. You can hear some here.
They’re getting louder and more frequent now. Soon you’ll see them shooting into the sky, even before it’s completely dark. You can’t resist the anticipation, I suppose.
Here’s Jake playing catch an hour or so ago. I found a hole he dug, too, and he gets disciplined.
