Luckily, my friends invited me down to the lake when I got off work on the Fourth. I admit I went reluctantly, I was whining a bit about driving down late in the day to a spot I'd never been, not being able to find a place to park, crowds, blah, blah, blah. I did find a place to park, and even though it was really, ridiculously crowded, I had a great time hanging out with Erin, Vickie and Sandor and enjoyed a bit of people-watching. (Most absurd moment: watching people do vodka intranasally. Think about it.) The fireworks were pretty amazing, because they were fired off from the lake and we were pretty close to the shore - we were laying down on a blanket and it sometimes seemed like they were falling right down on us. (Confession: Vickie and I got a little scared a couple times.)
So, here are a couple pictures and a little video for those of you who might have missed seeing a fireworks show. Hope you all had a great weekend!
