Yay for the 4th of July! Jack and I had a great time, even though it was easily the hottest day so far this year. We spent a lot of the morning inside cleaning up around the house. I am trying to reduce clutter. We left in time to get to the parade route for the parade that was supposed to start at 1pm, but it still hadn't gotten to us at 1:25pm. But, once it did arrive, it was a great show. We stuck it out until 2:30pm, and then finally called it quits. It was over 100F with the heat index. Phew!
The rest of the afternoon, we tried to cool off before heading back out to campus for the fireworks show. We got to the field by the stadium around 6pm, and a live band was set up to play for everyone until dark. They had lots of vendors, air-filled games, and such going on, but mostly Jack and I danced. A local photographer was there snapping shots, and he emailed me the ones he took of Jack and I.
Okay, it's still way too hot here. Ugh.
