Hooray for July 6!

So by now everyone knows my fireworks jinx. Well I guess as long as I go not on the 4th of July I'm good. I finally saw them at Penns Landing in Philly on the waterfront as part of the Welcome America celebration. They were absolutely fantastic!!! They were CHOREOGRAPHED to the music...and were continous...not one per minute or less. Man I can't get over how horrendous they were the other night. Anyway, the show tonight....it felt like the fireworks were on top of us. It was that awesome. And the sound was shattering...so great:) 20 mins of sheer happiness...and redemption. Did I mention how happy I am:)

So yeah today was a good day. This morning I went for a 14 mile bike ride with my dad along the Delaware River canal on the New Jersey side. That was a lot of fun.

This afternoon Nicole came over and I drove down to Philly for the festivities. We parked and went to Dave and Busters...it looked like it may rain for a while but thankfully just overcast. Her dad's company had some kind of conference and went to D&B so she had leftover cards to use up. So we each had about 20 bucks to spend on games!!! I ended up winning over 600 tickets and getting a frosty mug as well as a shooter:) Yay ready for Arts Fest! We ended up eating there before heading to get a spot at Penns Landing. We ended up getting a great spot right on the waterfront....People ended up standing behind us...while we got to sit:)

So here I sit...completely satisfied and appeased now:) I LOVE JULY 6:)
