4th of July
On Saturday, Josh and I decided to do something a little crazy. We left our house around 1pm and walked over to Gasworks Park to hang out ALL afternoon, staking out a good spot to watch the fireworks from. It was hot, yes. What saved us was the small black umbrella we decided to bring along. I held up that umbrella and shaded at least the top half of our bodies all afternoon until the sun was more bearable.
But it was fun. Fun to watch everyone around us.. staking out their spots and grabbing what bits of grass were left.. watching people fly kites..etc.
And then the fireworks really did make it all worth it. A spectacular show, timed to music, with the downtown skyline in the background. It was beautiful.
