I love Independence Day. I feel so grateful to be in this wonderful country. I've truly been blessed here and have made it my home.
We went downtown to a celebration with symphony, booming cannons and magnificent fireworks. We arrived three hours before the concert to find an easy parking space and to play at the park. We brought a picnic, ate, the kids played in the splash pad area and we enjoyed an afternoon in the fresh air (as much as a big city can offer). At 8pm we went to the concert area and were lucky to find a small line waiting for the remaining seats in the theatre... we were able to get great seats!!
