The birthday of a nation

Yesterday was a day of celebration for our great nation--A birthday party of sorts. It just didn't seem to be the same for me as it used to be when I was a kid. I really miss the fireworks in the backyard. I never noticed it until this year how much I really missed it. Our county doesn't allow ANY fireworks due to fire danger. There is an exception as there is a big display downtown which is where 15,000 of your closest friends go too. You go downtown, pay to park if you can find a place to park, watch 20 min of fireworks and then spend the next 2 1/2 hours trying to get home. Somehow, it just doesn't seem to be the 4th of July without burgers, dogs and sparklers.

We did get to hang by the pool with the kids which was fun. With a college aged kido, it can be a bit difficult getting the girls all together. We swam, made burgers and dogs, ate corn on the cob and ice cream. All in all--it seemed like a nice mid-week, Saturday afternoon.
