Man, I love the Fourth of July! I was wondering earlier in the day if the heat was gonna be enough of a deterrent that I wouldn't have as much fun. Didn't matter. Doesn't usually. Yes, I sweat all the way through my t-shirt. But it was just a total blast, as always! Take that, insane heat wave!

And it's great how the entire city gets involved. I could hear blasts from miles away. I could see aerial displays everywhere I turned.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe July 4th.


For the first time ever, I decided to record some of my fireworks...a new tradition.
