    We started our festivities last night by going to the College World Series Homerun Derby. It was a lot of fun. It was also really hot. I've always been impressed with how huge a home run looks in person.

    Then after that several hour event, we were "treated" to a perfomance by Cowboy Mouth.

    Then we watched a long firework show.

    Surprisingly, this morning my five year old said the homerun derby was his favorite part. I thought for sure it would be the fireworks.

    Tonight we're going to have a BBQ at my bro-in-law's and light off some fireworks in the front yard. I'm bringing the sparklers!

    I might just go to Spider-Man and spend all that money I saved on Fireworks at the movie theater.

    Spider-Man was good. Probably liked it better than the Raimi movies... At least so far.

    Only one faultyfirework that blew 12 rounds at ground level instead of up in the air.

    my parents were in the local parade this morning, since my dad is the town mayor. They made the mistake of not waking me up when they left, so I missed that. Then we spent 4 hours removing tile from a portion of our roof because the roofers come tomorrow morning to start replacing the roof and my dad had promised he'd have this portion done. I'm getting up at 7 tomorrow morning to finish the rest of that before going to work. what fun.

    After working on the roof, we went down to the city golf course, had dinner at the restaurant, and then watched the fireworks the city puts on every year. More than 9000 people came down to the golf course driving range to watch, and man, was the finale impressive this year.

    Happy Independence Day. Unless you're still in your parent's basement.
