A 5th of July Miracle!

Champaign–Urbana's fireworks were postponed until July 5th due to a rainy 4th. Since they moved the fireworks out by Parkland we are able to view them from just past our yard.

I think this is the third year for the relocated fireworks and for the previous two, though they were just feet away from me viewing them--I always seemed to be inside with a youngin' who got freaked out by the booms. Or by someone who really wanted to watch Dora instead of the fireworks.

Miraculously this year the entire brood stayed out and watched the entire display!

About 6 pm I told R to call you and see if he could park at your house and watch from your yard.

Maybe next year we'll plan it and bring your brood some food.

Sounds great! It was a nice old-timey event. People started gathering around 8 and by 9 kids were on blankets and asking how much longer. Although it was probably one of the latest nights for the kids as far as bedtime, but I'm hoping the memories will last.
