4th of July!

I live at an RV park attached to an amusement park, we are across the street from a horse track and casino, today is the one day a week I'm off and I had things to do.

Amusement park rides
The Horse Track & Casino

I went out early this morning & stopped at Walmart so I could get some cash back (I was going to a wrecking yard for a spare tire).
At that hour I had to wonder about the people leaving Walmart and the stuff they were carrying.
Ice chests, umbrella lawn chairs, beer & watermelon were all sighted on the walk from the car, then I remembered that today is the 3rd of July!
The 4th had always been one of my favorite holidays... I work again this year & had not thought of the festivities that will be going on this 3 day weekend.

When I got back to the RV park there was a long line of RV's waiting to get in, there were more parked in office parking lot.
I took a look at the large tent area, there are a lot of folks set up there.... you can drive up to where you set up your tent, it's a nice place.
We did a lot of tent camping for many years & this is a good spot.

Tents & trailers

The horse track/casino is having their fireworks tonight & the amusement park are doing fireworks on Friday (the 4th) and Saturday nights.
The boxes are the fireworks ready to go at the track infield

People waiting for the fireworks but first there will be some horse racing!

Most of my kids and grandkids will be camping this weekend 2000 miles from me, I'll be loading people on the sky cars safely (trying to) in Iowa.
I am going to have give some thought about this working on my favorite holidays in the future.

Have a good 4th of July & a safe one.  

Happy Birthday America!!

  1. A GREAT fireworks display at the casino! I don't think I've actually seen a 'star' or 'heart' done before.
