I spent my 4th of July at a local park with some good friends. It was quite the event. Lots and lots of people, food, and fireworks. L staked out a good spot on the hill early in the day while I was at work and it ended up being the perfect spot to watch the fireworks show. I met up with everyone after work and brought some Dick's burgers for dinner (tasty, cheap, and classic). It ended up being a really fun night and the fireworks did not disappoint. The only thing I hate about the 4th is all of the extra fireworks that seem to go off continuously the day before and after. I feel bad for all those puppies and kitties cowering in corners the week of the 4th. I do enjoy a good show though.
