Target fools me every year with their super cheap sparklers. I buy tons of boxes thinking about how it will be SO great and the kids will love it so much…and then we actually use them and I remember that the sticks are so short that they burn for less than 1 min. It’s not even enough time to photograph them with the darn things. In order to get these shots, I had to let them burn more than one at a time, otherwise I am just constantly lighting new sparklers!

Regardless, I was so happy to see that Ari was not afraid to jump back on the sparkler train after burning her hand. Brave girl. Brave girl.
