Independence Day and Bucket List #1
I hope everyone out there had a fantastic Fourth of July. Unfortunately, our Independence Day ritual of meeting up with family friends by the pool was rained out :( but I was lucky enough to sneak in my fireworks viewing a couple days early, on Saturday, with some friends. I mean—what’s Fourth of July without fireworks?
But actually, really when you think about it the fireworks show was a Second of July celebration—and that’s how it always is when the fourth doesn’t fall on a weekend day. So on the Second of July I saw fireworks, and then the Third of July was supposed to be a big barbecue. What did I do on Fourth of July? Well…I slept in, for one. I watched Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks show (seriously, how long have they been doing this? I thought they had Thanksgiving…but Independence Day, too?) I also had some of this addicting Asian Noodle Salad, so I’d call it a pretty successful day :)
Bucket List #1: Fly in an airplane on Fourth of July and watch fireworks from above.
So yes, the timing would have to be perfect, and the plane would have to be at optimal height to actually be able to see fireworks, but I think it’s definitely worth trying.
