Happy Birthday America

It’s really cute hearing the little kids say “Happy Birthday America!” on TV.

Val and I celebrated the fourth by basically just relaxing. Ran a few errands and took a nice walk along the Charles.

We had a little cookout on our $15 grill which was fun. Then when it started getting dark, we took a small journey over to Newton to see their fireworks display.

Newton actually puts on quite the show. There was a big crowd there, music, fried dough, etc.

And the fireworks were great. There was one part that I thought was the finale

But that ended up being just part of the middle of the show, so yeah, they went all out!
