Until yesterday, Mr. No had never seen fireworks besides maybe a passing glance out the window while driving. I just thought the noise would be too much for a little one's ears. It's too much for my ears sometimes. The country club near Nana's house has fireworks every year and, since the trees were all chopped down due to beetles, they now have a perfect view of them from their driveway. So Nana invited us over for dinner and fireworks. Mr. No adores his Nana and Papa and from the time he woke up (about 7 a.m.) until 4:30 when we finally left for Nana and Papa's all I heard was Are we going to Nana's house now? Are we going to Nana's house now? Thank goodness he took an hour nap!
Apparently, he had been squishing mushrooms with Papa the day before and that's all he wanted to do outside at first. He thought it was the best game. He was even in a good enough mood to pause for a few photos!

Once he got tired of mushroom squishing, Mr. No then followed the path of grandchildren-made stepping stones into Nana's garden. He decided that it was a jungle and he was lion. He crouched behind the plants and began roaring.

While the crouching lion was occupied again, I snapped a few more flower photos. Until he got himself kicked out of the garden for stomping on plants.
|he looks so innocent but we know better...|
