This year our Fourth of July was a little different than in years past because normally we spend a lot of time with the Reagens. This year they were on vacation, so we spent a lot of time with the Lieslands. Thursday night, the 2nd, we went to our traditional parking garage-top viewing sport for the Yankee Doodle Pops fireworks.
On the actual Fourth of July we had lunch with some friends, caught Flying Pig Fiddle & Banjo for an evening concert experience, and then the kids and I caught some post-bedtime fireworks sponsored by Urbandale and Windsor Heights. It was a fun, relaxing weekend.
