I love fireworks. Love them. I can remember when I was really little going out to what was then a big grassy field in Johnny Appleseed Park to watch the fireworks at the end of the Three Rivers Festival and going out in the boat to watch the fireworks at the lake almost every July 4th. Those memories are some of my favorites from childhood.
My favorite July 4th as an adult was when Alan and I went to NYC for the weekend in 2009. We watched the fireworks on one of the piers on the Hudson River. Very very cool. It was actually the only time we saw fireworks on the fourth while we lived in Pennsylvania.
I think this was the last time we saw fireworks on the fourth actually...now that we have kids, they've been too young really so we haven't bothered. Until this year. Tonight we're taking them to see the fireworks in town and possibly tomorrow night on the lake.
I cannot wait!
