Happy Fourth of July!

Yesterday we attended a Rockies baseball game against the Dodgers. We won’t speak of their loss, nor how close it was, nor whether or not they had fun (inside jokes with family), but we got to watch it from a private suite (sweet!), and afterwards, were treated to a spectacular fireworks show! Of all the fireworks I’ve seen, these folks at Coors Stadium kick royal ass! Coors stadium opens up most of the field to everyone to lay on the grass and watch, and the last two times we went, we laid out on the grass and watched in awe. This time, I stayed back with some of our family members who didn’t head down, and we watched from an outside landing…we were actually closer to the fireworks than being out on the playing field. But, in either location, at the hypnotic, finale fusillade, the explosions were so powerful, you felt the concussions actually pounding your body!

It’s nothing short of jaw-dropping.

      Thanks, Wendy, for indulging us Yanks (or “colonists”) in our celebration!

      Fireworks are COOL, huh, no matter the occasion? :-] But, dang it, Rockies….

  2. LOVE FIREWORKS!! Makes being a July baby that much better. Sorry the Rockies didn’t win, but it sounds like you had a blast! Happy Independence Day, Frank!

    Happy 4th of July to you too, Frank and Laura. We went to a friend’s 4th party and hope to catch CU’s fireworks tonight if the weather holds out…it’s sprinkling on and off up here. Best best best and Red, White and Blue hugs from Boulder!

      Thanks, Karen! Hope you and your family also had a great one–Red, White, and Blue hugs back atchya! It rained off and on down here, too, but we didn’t let that get to us!
