We got there at 8:15 and instantly felt claustrophobic. I wish that many people celebrated MY birthday every year! We made our way to a bar to have a drink since there were literally 2593475923652375 people and we could hardly walk. After my yummy blue moon, we left to find a spot to watch the fireworks.
9:20 and they start... everyone is "ooh'ing" and "ahhh'ing" and me & V just look at each other and look around confused. Yes, our AMAZING spot (that we thought we were so clever to find) was not even in visible range of the fireworks. So, we braced ourselves to walk through the crowds one more time and found a nice little spot BEHIND TREES. (yes, trees).
Did I mention that we were only there for about an hour and a half and it took OVER AN HOUR to get out of the parking lot??!!? And of course as soon as we got in the car to leave I had to use the bathroom. Let me re-state that it took OVER. AN. HOUR. TO. GET. OUT. OF. THE. PARKING. LOT! I about peed myself, no joke.
After getting out, V beelined to a gas station and then we were on our way to his co-workers house to light off fireworks (It would have been a tad embarrassing to meet someone for the first time if I really did pee my pants!) We had a few glasses of wine and then V and his new BFF decided to have a firework duel (forgot the name of the firework) but the boys were pointing them at each other and the fireworks shoot out. NOT A SMART HUBBY!
And then one of the big fireworks fell down and I almost died because it shot its 500 fireworks in my direction. I literally was jumping and dodging, I felt like I should be in some type of action movie. Near death experience. It would not have been good for my blogging status at all. Phew.
And here is my one and only AMAZING picture of the night. Brace yourselves. It's just that amazing.
|Yup, I told you it was amazing..... HA!|
P.S. Funny story, while we were on our way to see the Fireworks, Hubby asked me if I brought my camera (for once I didn't). But, I totally thought of you Kelly B., J.D. when your hubby asked if you had your camera when you got engaged! :)
