Re: 4th of July weekend plans

Got the weekend started early this evening. BBQ over at my Mom's. My stepdad hooked up some mean burgers on the grill. I had two with jalepenos and cheddar, along with fresh corn on the cob and pasta salad, and some ice cold beer. Perfect day today in DC, too. Good stuff.

Going to take the HD camcorder and hopefully get some good video.
did it pop a hole and won't hold the coals anymore?

Nice.
that's my usual role, typically less kids involved though

Oh man. I can't believe you've never seen them live. It's so awesome. Being at the foot of the Washington Monument with those fireworks going off overhead... gives me chills.

Neither my wife nor her twin sister who will be in town this weekend have ever seen them live in DC. It's gonna be awesome to see their reaction.

I never have either. My family never did much of anything and living in southern VA there was usually even less to do. Though from our nearly annual visit to SC we'd buy a ton of fireworks and wait almost a year to set them off for the 4th.

Since being back up here I was always working too much to venture into DC for the show. One of these years I'll make it.

IT is a good show but to me fireworks are fireworks, they have not come out with anything new in the fireworks world.

One year I lost my ride home during the fireworks and I had to sleep in the Mall in DC until the metro's started running again, it was actual a fun experience.

Re: 4th of July weekend plans

I became a big fan of fireworks again last summer, first year in our new place. The town launches them off from the beach right behind our place so they literally feel like they're right on top of you. A big crowd gathers on the common area in our development and it creates a buzz of excitement. Boats cruise in and anchor up out on the lake, and we have a top notch view from the comfort of our deck. Drinks in hand, good eats, fireworks, the lake, summer is officially here!

That sounds like a great time. Didn't you say you own a boat or you want to buy one at some point?

Just got my boat last week! Looks like great weather this weekend so we're looking forward to getting in some serious boat time.

Thats the deal when you don;t have to trailer and it in the water ready to go when you want to take a cruise. Are you new to boating.
