Gave proof through the night...

Katie and I hope you all had a great Fourth of July (whether you observe the U.S. Independence Day or not). We had fun with Katie's brother and his girlfriend at the fireworks in St. Charles, IL. We were going to head up to the Wisconsin Dells, but the weather kinda battered down that plan. So we stuck around here and just did our normal thing. And we loved every second of it.

If you weren't able to see any fireworks of your own, here are a couple videos I captured on my Blackberry for you to enjoy. Surprisingly good quality for a phone-based video camera. I was impressed.

I did drunken yoga and got burnt from some fireworks.
Fun times! :P


Oooohhhh... you getting all twisty and bendy while drunk? FUN! Video?


Nice fireworks. You are right, your phone does do a good capture. Put my Treo to shame for both photos and videos.


I love me some fireworks. We were really fortunate in that we had a view of the barge that was shooting them off in Lake Union, so we had a perfect view of them from launch to explosion. I think it usually parked further north so this was the first year I've seen the barge -- but fortunately, it's all within four blocks of my place so it's not a huge hassle to see them.


It's shockingly good. And Katie was pissed that she couldn't do that
on her iPhone.


Not a hassle at all.


This was our first year sans fireworks. I'm ok with that. But I'll probably go back to it next year.


I think Katie and I would cry without fireworks.
