malia was sick all weekend so we didn't go out for independence day. we watched movies and played with toys. when 9pm came around, we could hear some fireworks close to us. but the big hill by our house was in the way. from upstairs, the kids saw one or two fireworks in the distance. then they complained that we weren't out watching fireworks. so i turned on the tv and we watched the fireworks show in DC. then micah said he wanted disneyland fireworks instead. (disneyland started showing their 4th of july fireworks on the 1st and someone had already uploaded it to youtube.) so there we were, the 4 of us, watching the disneyland fireworks on youtube. the kids were happy.
