We kicked off the weekened by watching the a couple episodes of the HBO mini series John Adams. If you haven't seen it, definatly check it out. The episodes are about an hour a piece, so you wont be watching it all in one night (you will want to, but I hope you dont). The series is really interesting and educational. At the very least, the set reminded me to be thankful for the freedom we have, thanks to many people who sacrificed so much during the 1700's to make us a Country. There is definatly a reason to celebrate!
Today, we are heading out to Rhode Island, (where fireworks are not illegal) to check out the celebrations going on in the city of Woonsocket. I hear there is going to be Lawn Mower obstacle races, Gunnysack races, turtle races and a parade in the evening (woohoo!). It should be a lot of fun!
