Later, we headed over to the Columbia Lakefront for the fireworks. It was PACKED and after much searching, we found a small patch of grass that we could sit on. We wiled away the hour by playing Words with Friends on our phones (basically like Scrabble....what would we do without phones?) As it got dark, I got our glow sticks ready, forced Ben to wear his blue necklace, and pulled out the camera!
The fireworks were really really great! Ben said that they were better then he remembered and I got some really great pictures! Hope you enjoyed the Fourth!
