Things have been great with EC. He bought me flowers for my birthday and sent them to my workplace. Very romantic. That makes the second time he's done that and i love it (the first time was Valentine's Day).

oh and we had a great 4th. It was a hot day, so i didn't want to go to one of those fairgrounds all day... But i did want to drive out there in time for fireworks.


I'd say we made it just in time. We started to see the fireworks from the highway... pulled off the interstate and the fairgrounds were packed. No place to park. I thought, we'd just circle around and watch them from the car... when we started up the onramp, several cars were parked on the side because there was a good view from the onramp. So, i pulled over too. It was a great family night. We sang all the patriotic songs we could think of... and oohed and ahhhed over the beautiful fireworks. A cop car pulled up right at the finale and said "MOVE!!"... Then we drove home. A perfect night out, if you ask me.

In our town they have always had the fireworks on the 3rd, I don't know why. They set them off from the beach (well actually the water near the beach) which is about a mile from my house. So I can just walk down to the end of my street & sit on the seawall and watch them. Our whole neighborhood is full of people having parties, then everybody goes down to the water at night. Some people buy fireworks & set them off from the beach and some people made a bonfire this year--it was kind of crazy. The fire truck was trying to come down this narrow street which was full of people & dark. But it's kind of fun too.

Great update, Looney. And heck yeah, share those good times too.

I too always try to turn mishaps into opportunities, just my optimistic nature I guess. And it teaches your kids to be calm in times of adversity.

Enjoy the reunion and trip to HI. What part of HI are you going to?
