We had amazing seats for the fireworks, and a good parking spot to boot. What a great evening! It'll be even better when the kids are old enough to stay up this late without getting cranky. When is that? 10 years from now?
On the plus side, we aren't even 5 feet out of our great parking spot, and Claire is already asleep!
The Citizens Band did a very moving tribute to the armed forces. They played each military branch's hymn, and asked vets to stand as their branch's hymn was played. It was my favorite part of the concert, except for the Battle Hymn of the Republic. The choir did the same arrangement that we did in high school. One of my all-time favorites.
For a day that began with no plan, this ended up being pretty great. Hope your holiday was similarly pleasant, and that everyone has the same number of fingers they woke up with!
