For those in the US, I hope you had a good Independence Day! And that every else just had a great day in general. We went to my BIL's and took the kids to the pool. We were actually planning on going to the waterpark, got there right at noon when they opened and there was no parking. The line wrapped around the building and out past the 3 baseball diamonds behind it! So we left and ended up going to the wave pool the next suburb over. Not as cool, but the boys still had fun.
Then my BIL suggested we go grill burgers at his house. So we get there and all he has are turkey and veggie burgers. And I mean no offense to those who are vegetarian/vegan/just like to eat really healthy, but that's not me. I would rather one good beef burger than a dozen 'wannabees' (as I call them). That's just me! But BIL got upset when I sent DH to the store to get some beef so I could have a real burger. The kicker? I made up all the patties (there were 6 adults and 2 kids) and even BIL ate my beef burgers, not his turkey ones, and liked it! Goober.
We went to go see fireworks at the Sears Center Arena, but traffic was horrible, so we pulled off to watch at a forest preserve about 3 miles away. Unfortunately they were terrible. I was so mad. But not as mad as those in San Diego! If you haven't seen the news yet take a look! All their fireworks went off 5 minutes before the show started...at once! It was over in 15 seconds.
We also have road buckling under the heat here now. Columbus is out of use downtown, and 2 roads in my local suburb (at a major intersection no less) are out of use. Just falling apart under the heat. It reached 101 yesterday, they are calling for the same today and tomorrow. I'm so ready to be done.
What were your 4th of July festivities???
