This was the coolest July 4th I’ve had in a long time.
Jeff and Deborah came over to hang out and celebrate with us.
Adam fired up the grill.
I put on my patriotic gear.
The boys made dinner.
Then we walked around the neighborhood to see fireworks!
When Adam told me about the fireworks in his neighborhood, I had a feeling they were impressive, but I really had no idea they were like this (you MUST watch this video, keeping in mind that these are not put on by the city or anything–these are private people’s displays):
Imagine four of these displays, happening at the same time, for about four hours. Yeah, it’s like that. Who needs to go to Navy Pier? We just need to walk three blocks.
They were almost too loud for Aidan:
But he had a good time anyway.
Right now, everyone’s playing Wii and eating ice cream. A fun Fourth of July in Chicago.
