We had a wonderful 4th of July. We went to a great parade downtown where they handed out everything from soda to candy to ice cream. Later on, we went to a bar-b-que celebration with some friends. We finished the evening with fireworks, of course. I guess I have not lived in a town that allows fireworks in city limits in a very long time, because I was amazed at all the different directions they were coming from! It didn’t matter where you looked, there were fireworks going off. It was a colorful (and VERY loud) night, but a great time was had by all.
