Fireworks for the toddlers

This week Elliot attended his first ever firework display at the ripe old age of almost 2. And he loved it!!

There were a lot of displays on in the area but most were abit too late for Elliot but we heard about one at a local school that started at 5.30pm and thought this would be perfect. He'd be home in time for bed! 
All ready to go!

It was a great atmosphere once we got there - they had a massive bonfire, a band, a bar (good for the dads!) and a BBQ. The only downside were no sparklers allowed (dammit, I was looking forward to the sparklers!!) and the COWPATS!! I stupidly assumed we be on the school field but no, we were in an actual field next to the school. Once that usually has cows in! I lost track of how many I slipped on! Fine if you're wearing wellies but not so good with converse ;)

We met up with some friends of ours and the kids had massive glow stick thingys that looked a bit like a multicoloured lightsaber - much safer than sparklers! We had some drinks and burgers and waited patiently for the fireworks.

I was a bit worried that Elliot would hate the noises but I needn't have been worried, he was mesmerised! Even the massive big bangs didn't bother him. 

Definitely a resounding success and we might even find another display to go to next weekend!
