So, overall, best 4th in a long while. I wore my white sweater, and a Canada and an America button (so that Canada could have a bit of belated birthday fun, and to complete the red, white and blue), and then, fittingly, ate a hamburger for dinner! My god father made AMAZING icecream: Andes mint, something with "squirrel" in the title, chocolate, coffee, olloliberry with tiny peanut butter cups and my all time favorite, coconut with rum and cashews (YUUUUM).
Then we went down to the beach and our group and a bunch of other people set off totally awesome fireworks, all around and directly over us. The po-po came by a lot, but didn't actually bust anyone. They told us we had to be off the beach by 10, and we all booed! heeheheheh
all in all, a good 4th!
