For dinner we'll be getting down on some fried chicken and tater salad (Chunky had cravings for both and we consented).
But we won't be enjoying any fireworks today.
Because we did that Friday night.
The townships stagger their fireworks on different nights so that they're not all going off at the same time. Everything is soooo squished here it's hilarious when their displays all end up on the same night.
We've seen this happen when they get rain delayed. (mmm...rain!) We've watched four or five displays from our back porch.
But this year it was way cool being right up under the fireworks.
We packed a picnic dinner.
And sat in the field with 19,996 other people listening to the cover band they had playing in the bandshell until nightfall.
Mooch and I danced.
And Dr. Mad Scientist groomed Chunky like a monkey.
Finally at about 9:30/10:00 the fireworks finally started.
I didn't get any pictures because my camera sucks at night pictures.
But they were AMAZING. I guess I'm easily impressed by Fourth of July fireworks. Because, let's face it, Alaskan July 4th fireworks suck because it's always too light out.
