Independence in Idaho
I've celebrated the Fourth of July in Arizona most all of my life, except for 2 years in Canada. This year, I celebrated in Boise. We had Thursday and Friday off school, so we made a LONG weekend out of it by leaving Rexburg Wednesday night. I'll give you the highlights rather than the play-by-play.
-We saw Transformers 2. It was okay. I wanted to play editor and chop out several characters and lines. A lot of it was completely unneccesary and dumb. But the battle sequences were really impressive.
-We went to Eagle Island Park and swam in the lake and rode the water slide. The water in the lake was a pale brown -not too inviting, but still fun.
-We went and played around in downtown Boise and had dinner on the balcony that overlooks downtown main. They had live entertainment -very cool. After dinner, we played in a fountain and some of my friends got SOAKED.
-I got to meet the families of a few of my friends.
-We floated the Boise River on an inner tube, then had a barbeque in the park while we waited for the fireworks to start.
-Watched the fireworks and had a blast!
