A Happy Fourth

This year's Fourth of July was sunny and bright!  We kept it super low key since we were recovering (still) from our camping trip, and all of us were either succumbing to or getting over a nasty chest cold.  (Guess who still has it?  Winner winner, chicken dinner!)  We started festivities by washing our cars (using cheap and willing child labor, including the neighbor child) and then ended the day with some mild fireworks.  (No big and loud sounds for this crowd.)  Sandwiched in-between was a dinner consisting of hot dogs, potato chips, raw veggies with hummus, fruit salad, and berry shortcake for dessert.

The local fireworks was the day before on the third, and didn't start until 9:20--the time it actually gets dark here.  Which is even later (obviously given different latitudes) than in Maryland.  It made me wonder what time they start the festivities in places like Alaska.  Do they just give up on the idea of it being completely dark?  Of course, we had our neighbor's fireworks to listen to on the following days.  It was......not awesome.  The Fourth of July really is not one of my favorite holidays.  I am really quite a curmudgeon. I am o.k. with that.  (*waves fists at all the young hooligans*)
