What are your plans for the 4th? Does it involve sun, fun and fireworks?

My daughter was 8 months old her first 4th of July. We celebrated at my parents' home on the river. I remember feeling anxious about protecting her from the sun, bugs, heat and loud fireworks!

Do you know at what age you can apply sunscreen and bug spray to your LO? Are you planning on attending celebrations or fireworks?
