Happy 4th of July {a couple days late}

Hey everybody! I hope you have been enjoying some guest posts! I just have to say thank you to Rachel and Francesca. They were both awesome posts!

First off, Happy 4th of July! I hope you all had a great day! I didn't do much that day, but it was sure a day I wouldn't forget...

 On the 4th of July, my younger brother, parents, my aunt, and I went to a firework show. We left REALLY early, but that's what we were told to do! So we were there at like 6:00 PM or so. The show started at 9:45 (actually, 10:00). So we had nothing to do for those 3+ hours! My dad, brother, and I went to some stores right around the lake where they were setting the fireworks off. We had some very yummy ice cream! (random, I know) The bad thing was, it rained and stormed off and on while we were waiting. Luckily, it didn't rain when the fireworks were going off.
 Coming from the "4th of July City of America", this firework show was really good! The "4th of July City of America" is Seward, Nebraska, where I was born. I thought this firework show was going to be wimpy compared to Seward's firework shows! IT WAS NOT!! This firework show was really good! And there wasn't just one firework show going on. We were there for one, but there were many. There was a group of people that were at the lake at 7:00 AM. They got really good seats. They lite off a lot of cool fireworks before the show. There was another group of people that lived close by that lite a lot of fireworks before and during the show as well. When the main firework show was switching barges (there were two full of fireworks), there was some other huge firework show going on at the same time! No kidding! We were looking at all 4 of these firework shows! It was a crazy night! It took us like 30 minutes just to get out of the parking lot. :( not very fun! It was also crazy because the guys we sat by... never mind. They were just crazy boys.
Here's a quick little story before I "leave". There was a little, tiny boat that was on the lake for hours just going around doing whatever. My family noticed that there was a weird looking thing on the back of the boat, but it was a little too dark to see what it was. In the middle of the other firework shows, the boat was 10 ft. or less in front of us, and started lighting TONS of fireworks right above our heads! It was kind of scary, but for this little boat, there were a lot of fireworks!

I hope you had a very good 4th of July! How was it? Was it as crazy as my firework show?


  1. It started pouring rain ten minutes into our fireworks show at home. Half the town was out on the commons and we all got drenched :(
