4th July Fireworks

Last night we headed over to Peoria to see a fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. It was held at the baseball training ground so up we went onto the bleachers to watch it light up the sky. They had quite a few other attractions there too, including snow! Real snow. Yes, that's aright, in Arizona. In 105F, we had snow. It was produced from a machine, but it was still snow all the same! So that was quite odd, but whatever.

The display lasted for about half an hour, and although the display was impressive, the music didn't quite live up to the same hype. I thought I was going to have to listen to the same America jingle for the entire show, they seemed to just have it suck on repeat. Then once it was all sorted out, the music suddenly blasted out louder, as my dad pointed out - there would have been louder music coming out from a Honda Civic. If you don't know what that is, well, it's not great lets put it that way - the PA system was so quiet!

But anyway, we enjoyed the fireworks all the same, and then it was off back to the car park to wait another forty-five minutes before we could even exit it. Oh the joys of road blocks.

Next post to come includes photos from today's salt water tubing!
