Fireworks

Last night was the largest fireworks display in the Mid-South, ever. We watched from the amazingly un-crowded Mud Island (the best view, plus the nicest spot in town). Craig and I kept commenting at how few people were there; the best we can figure is that some pretty strong thunderstorms came through part of town yesterday and maybe the folks in the 'burbs were afraid that downtown was soaked (it wasn't).

We got there a little over an hour before the display began, enough time for the kids to play in the water a bit and to set up our blankets and chairs in a prime spot, overlooking the Wolf River and close to the fireworks.

Not much to say except Loud! Bright! Shiny! Fun! Here's a visual expression of our night.

I never even thought about going to Mud Island to watch - what a good idea! I imagine most people were at Tom Lee.

We didn't go b/c we're leaving Tuesday for Chicago. We're going to watch the fireworks at Navy Pier on the 4th.
