The kids spent Independence Day up in Cody with Granny, enjoying parades and fun over the past couple days that they wouldn't have enjoyed had they been here. It rained somethin' else today, which made me decide to forego any fireworks watching for the evening.
After work I enjoyed a movie with the windows open, as the air outside was beautiful and cool, even with smatterings of popping and cracking coming from every neighborhood nearby. Out of nowhere the popping became BOOMING, so I hurried to the window where I caught a fireworks display over the roof of one of the apartment buildings.
So all was not lost on this cool, wet, lonely July 4th evening. Even watching a little bit of the awesomeness was better than not seeing it at all...
