The second half of our day has been wonderful. The skies cleared about 1:00. We cooked out at my mom’s house and had hot dogs and burgers and of course, topped it off with homemade ice cream. Then, about 8:00 we headed out to watch fireworks at the fairgrounds. What is it about lighting fire to something and watching it explode that brings every neanderthal from a 100 mile radius out from his hole? I swear to you I felt like I was in a scene from Deliverance! Despite these crazy, insane people the fireworks were great. The kids loved them. I did not know how Linley would respond but she did great! She watched every flash of light and did not whimper even one time. All in all it was a great day. Happy Birthday America!
