Yesterday was Independence Day here in the good ol' US of A. The wife and I spent the day with her family up at the cottage. It was relaxing for the most part, but I could have used another day or two away from my daily routine to recharge.
On the way home, we pulled into a local parking lot to catch the fireworks from the Taste of Minnesota in downtown St. Paul. It was a perfect way to see the show...no crowds to deal with and it was very quiet and peaceful. Next year, we'll try to get something with a better view.
