We had a non-traditional celebration. When we moved we didn't bring our barbecue grill and I didn't feel like cooking, so off we celebrated fourth of July at the "In N Out" Burger place. My program with Weight Watchers took a back seat as I chowed down on a Double Cheese Burger with large fries. I usually share my fries with Renaissance Man, but this time I told him to get his own!
After wards, we dragged Moe to check out the sales at the sports store. It was funny looking at Moe and seeing how "miserable" he was. He would say, "My friends are either at the lake, at a beach in Hawaii, or on a cruise and I'm shopping with you guys, what a way to celebrate 4rth of July." His comment just made us laugh.
Of course, we would have loved it, if someone invited us for a barbecue at their house, but since we don't know a lot of people and our close friends and family live too far away , it was okay that we celebrated the fourth with just us. We still managed to have fun.
We went to the rodeo to watch the fireworks. We thought it would be fun to get to the rodeo a few hours early before the fireworks display started. Surprisingly, it was a cool evening and when the fireworks started...it lasted less than 6 minutes!!!! Three hours of waiting for a six minute fireworks show and it wasn't that great.
When we realized that the fireworks display was over, we looked at each other and burst out laughing! It was by far, the lamest and shortest fireworks display we've seen and ironically, it was the best Fourth of July we've had in a very long time.
At the end of the evening, Moe enjoyed himself and discovered that hanging out with just his parents wasn't so bad after all.
