I have a great family.
The 4th of July, I had off work. It was a slow, relaxing day.
The middle boy was sick and in bed all day and it was just us and the youngest boy. *The girl is still in FL with her dad and went to see the fireworks on the beach!* We took the yougest boy to the 'big city' fireworks, which is only 25 minutes away. It's was on the river and you can watch on either side of the river.
We arrived around 7:30pm with our chairs, walked down to the park by the river and found a nice spot near the radio station's tent. They had fun light rock to listen to. The two guys walked to the nearby Subway and bought us some subs and water for dinner.
Around 8pm, they had an airshow!
The fireworks started about 30 min later, at about 9:30pm.
Amazing finale!The patriotism filled me with pride and I loved every minute of it.
Afterwards, we picked up and made our way back to the Jeep, but the traffic was horrible. It was bumper to bumper and not moving at all. We sat in the Jeep for a few minutes and decided to walk into Applebee's which was right outside and sit and have an appetizer.
It was near this shopping center, so there was a lot of restaurants nearby.
We ordered a large order of Nacho's and drinks and the three of us just sat and chatted for a while.
By the time we were leaving, there was no line at all and we were able to drive straight home.
Hope everybody had a happy and safe Independence Day!
