Happy Birthday, America!

I love fireworks. It's as exciting as Christmas for me - without all the stress of presents and decorations and cooking. Traditionally, we go to the Street Fair in Ventura in the morning, then Dick barbecues - although Matt and Chris took over grill duty this year to celebrate their new house - and we go to Thousand Oaks to see the fireworks display.This year the fireworks came to us. The city changed the location from a local park (next to an animal shelter; bad planning) to the high school right across the freeway from us. We were able to sit on the sidewalk in front of our house and watch the display (and all the illegal rockets being set off a few blocks away.) Instead of 2-3 hours to get out of the parking lot in T.O., we were back inside the house in under a minute. Love it!

Wow, that was a fortunate turn of events for the fire work lovers in your neighbourhood!
