Happy 4th

With triple digit temperatures we stayed home much of the day. This evening we made a quiet stop at Frontenac State Park and observed a Bell's Vireo near the entrance, lifer #319 for me. After a half hour at the park we ate ice cream and sat near Lake City's Marina to watch fireworks.

Contrary to the fireworks last year, Michaela and Danielle's excitement prior to the start of the fireworks exceeded the excitement during the show itself. On the ride home, during which both girls fell asleep, Christine and I speculated the switch may have been due to the proximity to the launch site.  We also sat on chairs this year rather than a blanket, so you never know. 

We hope everyone enjoyed the celebrations.
