…and we are staying home once again to make sure our poor dogs don’t go too crazy. They hate fireworks. I don’t mind staying home here, it’s nice outside, we’ve had a very relaxing day and will BBQ burgers and watch a movie or two tonight. Someday the dogs will no longer be with us and we’ll go down to the bay and watch the fireworks display.
Last weekend Rick and I were at the bay, at Zuanich Park, right where the big Bellingham Bay Party is going on right now.
It was a gorgeous day, the kind that make you glad you live in the Northwest. (Right now with the raging heat and power outages back East, ANY day makes me glad I live here)
This photo from 2009 in the Tulip fields. That girl with the red purse kept getting in my way, and I finally gave up and made a picture with her in it. It turned out to be one of my favorites from that day!
I digress. Back to Independence day…
I do miss the hoopla and the crowds and the noise, I have fond memories of fireworks and parades as a kid, and memories of carrying our own kids back to the car after the fireworks display. I’ll read everyone else’s blogs tomorrow morning and see their pictures of fireworks; But for now, Rick and I are enjoying a lovely evening at home, in Sudden Valley, where fireworks are not allowed, and only a few stray cracks can be hear; home where it’s quiet and peaceful.
