183/365 - 4th of July Fireworks

We haven't been in town the last several years during the 4th of July. Last year, we spent the entire day at Cedar Point, from 9am until 1am the following day.

This year, we took things a little easier, hanging out at home and going out in the evening to view the local fireworks.

The city moved the fireworks display to the community college on the west side of town several years ago, where access to the venue is limited, resulting in horrible traffic at the end of the show. As a result, many of us set up camp a little bit away from the venue where the view was still decent, without the hassle of traffic congestion.

We were in the Schnuck’s parking lot.

Really, there’s a nice grassy area, so it was a nice way to view the fireworks. In fact, the place was packed with other spectators, so word had gotten out to the masses.

Jill brought sparklers that the kids ran around with.

These bad boys shoot out sparks. Always living on the edge, that Jill!

And we enjoyed the fireworks show. [although the kids became distracted by some videos Erica had saved on her cell phone - next year, no cell phone]

I lugged my tripod along.

And was glad I did.
