For the last few years, Ryan and I have spent the fourth barbecuing at his parents' house in lieu of watching fireworks. This year I was determined to see some though. Since the fourth fell on a Sunday this year (obviously), we got lucky and were able to catch a Saturday celebration without having to ditch the family.
I don't think I've ever sat so close to such a large fireworks display. One time hot ash even fell on us. It was crazy but all kinds of awesome. Other then that, we just spent the weekend eating and playing. It was great.
Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday!
