Celebrating the Happiest 4th of July!

When you are a kid, summer is a wonderful thing!  And hitting the half way mark of the summer break is bittersweet.   So when the 4th of July is here, it means not only is your summer break 1/2 over but also means you still have another half of summer break to enjoy …. so … Let’s get this party started!

This year, my kiddo and I (along with my parents and family friends) attended the Independence Day in Dublin, Ohio.

The 4th celebration included a lively atmosphere, yummy food, fun bounce houses and events for the younger folks, great music for everyone and a grand firework display immediately following the show.

This year, the music headliner was Earth, Wind & Fire!!  And they packed the house!

Of course, prior to the show having a young kiddo with me, we had to visit the children’s play area.  A wrist band was needed (cost of $5 per child), then we were off ….

to try our hand at throwing some ball …

 and to pretend he was playing for big $$ on Wipeout

and test his strength against the super bungee … (and this was hilarious I might add).

Then … it was time for the show.  The house was on their feet, singing and cheering and grooving with Earth Wind & Fire …. and yes, even my kiddo was on his feet!

They played their hits like September, Shining Star, and Boogie Wonderland to name a few.

Following this show, seems nothing could top their performance.  But the City of Dublin did just that with an awesome display of fireworks to please the crowd.
