My sis-in-law and I went downtown to the Fire and Ice festival (more like Fire and slush since it was 40 degrees go figure) while our hubbies saved the SWOR universe. We had huge hamburgers at the Hard Rock Cafe then mosied our way to the City square where there was much merriment and music (mostly reggae) in the rain...in December...in Alaska!
We were right across the street from where the fireworks were fired off and it was glorious! Loud,shiny,everything I had forgotten after so many years of staying home and missing out. I forgot what a big kid I am about fireworks, even some I had never seen before, lasted for 15 minutes and not just a flash here and there one at a time shots either, it was like machine gun fire!
We came home stuffed, wet, cold and very happy before 9 pm. We even made a date for next year unless the temps plunge to below 0.
I really have to get out more.
