It was a coolish day with the highs in the lower 50s. Last year I froze pretty much all day. It was cloudy and colder last year. I borrowed a friends Cuddl Duds this year and what a difference that made! Cuddl Duds are the bomb!
I had some hesitation about going to the fireworks show this year, due to the Boston Marathon tragedy. How sad that we live in a world such as this. My mind was put at ease (somewhat) by the extra security measures that were taken this year.
There was a silly individual setting off firecrackers among the crowd during the day. Along came fourteen officers who confiscated a backpack full of bottle rockets. The crowd cheered.
As usual the show was worth the eight and a half hours that we waited, as boring as it was. Good thing I like to people watch, I guess. (Why would a woman yank a toddler around on a leash?)
Not sure I’ll make it next year, but we’ll see!
