A little excited to see the firetrucks!
We celebrated Independence day trying to beat the heat, which was pretty hard to do. Especially considering the political marketing walk, ah, I mean parade, was at 2:00. Fortunately I went early to secure some spots in the shade. Even with that it was still a scorcher. We then had some good friends over for dinner and a few fireworks courtesy of our resident pyro's, Kyle and Taylor (pictures on the Instagram link on the upper right). We have pretty good view from our house of not only Waukee fireworks, but Des Moines Golf's and Teamwork Acres as well. All in all, in was a nice day to lounge around, drink lemonade and to remember the fact that we get to do that because of the sacrifices of so many men and women who have fought for this country.
