    Jon and Kate Gosselin may have announced their independence from each other and the media recently, but that didn't stop the reality-TV duo from having Fourth of July fireworks fun with their eight tykes.

    The Gosselin brood brought out their sparklers Saturday evening—with one of the sextuplets donning a holiday-appropriate American flag shirt and shorts to celebrate. As the kids played, Jon spent an hour lighting fireworks in front of the ex-couple's home.

    Jon was even spotted laughing with Kate at one point. An eyewitness tells E! News, "It's the first time I've seen Jon genuinely smile in a long time."

    However, fans shouldn't get to excited for a reconciliation just yet.

    Says the source, the holiday's events were "obviously for the kids."
