4th of july

so, the weekend of the 4th jamie was sick. which was especially disappointing since he had friday AND monday off! needless to say we didn't do much. however, on the 4th he did some research and we decided to go to a beach in long island. he found a place called "crab meadow" and saw that they were going to be setting off fireworks nearby so we would probably be able to see them from the beach. we didn't get this plan until fairly late in the day and there was some traffic, so we didn't get to the beach until 5pm. it was still really hot and sunny out though. this beach is in the sound, and it wasn't very crowded, so that was nice. but it was more like a lake than the ocean. it was completely flat and the beach and the ground in the water were COVERED with pebbles! that doesn't sound bad, but they HURT!!! it was the first time in my life i actually wished i had water shoes! as it started getting dark, more and more people came, so we figured we must be in a good spot. and sure enough, it was a great spot! we could see about 5 different firework displays! some were pretty far away, but you could still see them. it turned out to be a really nice 4th. the only bad thing was that we couldn't bring sophia with us, so she was left alone for a LONG time (with the traffic we got home pretty late). poor girl.
