A sad moment for Bella

Let me set the stage.  It is after dark, therefore quite late and past the time any respectable parent should let their 4 year old play with fire sticks.  Arabella is happily twirling her sparkler, anxious to see the next picture on my camera of her glittery circles.

She reluctantly shares the spotlight with her cousin Ned.

I get a photo of Ned alone.

Arabella pitches a fit about losing my full attention for even a moment, throws her still sparkling pyrotechnic on the ground, and starts to wail hysterically.

She runs to Daddy for support and sympathy.  He makes it all better.

Shortly after, we leave and Arabella falls fast asleep.

  1. Aren’t fireworks illegal in Columbus?

    • Thanks for your concern for our legal wellbeing, Todd, but we were well within the confines of the law :). You just cannot shoot off the “fly through the air and explode, setting trees and small children on fire” kind here – have to go 3 miles up the road to Alabama for that.

  2. Awww she so cute! I miss seeing Bella! Your family is so precious! That little Abrahama is a doll!!
