Happy 4th kiddies!! I spent the afternoon at the Oregon Zoo. Perfect weather - cannot stress this enough. If you are familiar with the Portland area, you know we have (generally) 10 months of cloudiness and rain and then two amazing warm, breezy, still green and gorgeous summer months... and I believe it started today!!
After the Zoo, I did a little firework watching in Colin's neighborhood. It's amazing how regular, shop at Albertson's, live in a cul-da-sac, sleeps in on the weekends folks turn into eardrum blasting, pyromania freaks, fireworks (aka bombs) fiends one night a year!! I love the light show but the medic in me gets super edgy when I see little kids so close to explosives.
