I started off the holiday by the pool Thursday afternoon, taking in the sun and also getting some swimming in. I ended the day with some dinner at Good Times, sitting outside and enjoying the weather. But first, we had to stop by the fireworks stand to grab some fountains and sparklers for the following night.
July Fourth itself was met with some lazing around, watching Independence day and putting the finishing touches on my Jello cake (in typical American fashion).
That evening, we headed over to the Thornton Rec Center fields we go to every year, which has by far the best fireworks display I’ve ever seen. They always start off the night with skydivers descending into the crowd strapped with fireworks. After they all safely reach the ground, the show begins.
So, that was July 4th around these parts. Tonight I think I’ll enjoy some hard cider and sit around the fire pit in the backyard.
